THE LIFE AND WORK OF DR. DANIEL BRAINARD * 
./ PROF. E. FLETCHER INGALS, M.D. 

& CHICAGO 

t Ladies and Gentlemen.: — I have been invited, or rather ordered, 
to address you on the life and work of Dr. Daniel Brainard, the 
founder of Rush Medical College, in this celebration of the cen- 
tennial of his birth. It is difficult to determine why this duty was^ 
assigned to me. Possibly it is because I had the misfortune to* 
have been born a* little earlier than any of my colleagues; pos- 
sibly because more than forty years of service in this institution 
was supposed to have given me a larger knowledge of the subject 
than others possessed; possibly because my revered uncle and pre- 
ceptor, the late Dr. Ephraim Ingals, had been a close friend of 
Dr. Brainard, had known him intimately and had fallen heir to 
many of his responsibilities in personal and college business — but 
I think the real reason lies in the fact that at the time the selection 
of an orator for the annual commencement of the college was made 
by the faculty, 1 was a thousand miles away and had no oppor- 
tunity to decline the honor. 

A few years ago Ephraim Ingals could' have given me first harifl 
a history of the life and achievements of Dr. Brainard. Three, 
years ago I could have obtained much of the information from 
Dr. Brainard's son; and a year ago I could have gotten it from 
his nephew, whom I knew very well, but these have now all passed 
to the beyond. The information I personally have obtained about 
him has largely been gained from the library of Rush Medical 
College and from several of Dr. Brainard's published articles, found 
in the Library of the Surgeon General's Office at Washington, but 
for a large part of the facts I am indebted to Dr. George H. 
Weaver, who made an exhaustive search of the literature and cor- 
responded with many of the old Alumni. I do not remember Dr. 
Brainard, but I undoubtedly saw him during the cholera epidemic 
in this city in 1854. My uncle occasionally spoke of him to me 
and gave me some of the details of his last illness. 

Daniel Brainard was born on the 15th of May, 1812, in the town 
of Western, Oneida County, New York. He was the fifth child in 
a family of nine, born to Jepthai Brainard, Jr., and Catharine 
Comstock Brainard. The father of Daniel Brainard was a farmer 
in comfortable circumstances and of excellent character, while his

mother was a most exemplary woman whose influence was deeply 
impressed on her children, and she doubtless did much in awaken- 
ing the genius and inspiring the aims of her son Daniel. He was 
given a good, 4 common school and academic education, the latter 
probably in the Oneida Institute in Whitesboro, N. Y. In 1829 
he began his professional studies in Whitesboro with Dr. E. S. 
Sykes, but he soon went to Eome, N. Y., where he continued his 
studies in the office of Dr. Harold H. Pope, a distinguished physi- 
cian of the place. He attended his first course of lectures in Fair- 
field Medical College, and afterward two courses in Jefferson Med- 
ical College in Philadelphia, where he received his degree in 1834 
when 22 years of age. After graduation he returned to Whitesboro, 
where he remained two years with his preceptor, nominally in 
practice but mostly engaged in the study of Latin and French, 
and in professional teaching. In the spring of 1836 he gave a 
course of lectures on anatomy and physiology in the Oneida Insti- 
tute, and shortly afterward came to this city. The Honorable John 
D. Catin, a lawyer and friend who was studying law in Eome, 
N. Y.. at the same time that Dr. Brainard was studying medicine, 
thus describes his arrival in Chicago: 

"Dr. Brainard rode up to my office on a little Indian pony. He 
was dressed rather shabbily and said he was nearly out of funds, 
and asked my advice about commencing the practice of medicine 
in Chicago. I knew he was ambitious, studious, and a man of 
ability, and I advised him to go to the Pottawatomie camp where 
the Indians were preparing to start for a new location west of the 
Mississippi Eiver and sell his pony; take a desk or rather a small 
table I had in my office, and put his shingle by the side of the 
door, promising to aid him in building up a business." 

Dr. Brainard seems to have made slow progress in securing a 
practice the first two years of his stay in Chicago. I was told by 
my uncle that he slept on his knapsack until he earned enough 
money to buy a bed; but in 1838 a laborer working on the canal 
several miles from the city fractured a thigh bone and before com- 
plete union had taken place he came to Chicago on foot which 
induced so much inflammation that at a consultation held by Drs. 
Brainard, Goodhue, Maxwell and Egan it was decided that ampu- 
tation was necessary. The majority advised amputation below the 
trochanters, while Dr. Brainard thought the limb should be ampu- 
tated at the hip joint. Dr. Brainard was selected to operate while 
Goodhue was to compress the femoral artery. The young surgeon 
removed the limb below the trochanters when he found that the 
medulary substance of the bone was diseased higher up. He imme- 
diately proceeded to amputate at the hip joint. The patient pro- 
gressed favorably for a month and the wound was nearly healed 
when secondary hemorrhage occurred, proving fatal. 



HUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 3 

Postmortem showed a large bony neoplasm attached to the pelvic 
bones and surrounding the femoral artery. This case attracted 
much attention and contributed largely toward giving the surgeon 
a leading position in the community. 

Dr. S. D. Gross, in his ''Kentucky Surgery," says that "Dr. 
Walter Brashear, a native of Kentucky, performed the first ampu- 
tation at the hip-joint in the United States -in 1806. This was 
eighteen years prior to the case of Dr. Mott of New York." Speak- 
ing of Dr. Brainard's case, the late Dr. Hyde said in "Early Med- 
ical Chicago," "It is likely that a number of such operations had 
been performed in this country, but it is certain that we have 
records of only two or three at the most." 

In 1837 Dr. Brainard opened a private school of anatomy, which 
he continued several years in his rooms on Clark Street opposite 
the Sherman House. 

In May, 1842, he was appointed to the chair of anatomy in the 
St. Louis University, where he delivered two courses of lectures. 

In 1839 he went to Paris, France, where he remained until 1841. 
There he spent most of his time in studies preparatory to opening- 
Rush Medical College, for which a charter had already been 
obtained; but the college was not actually opened until December, 
1843, when he assumed the duties of professor of anatomy and 
surgery. He soon gained an enviable reputation as teacher and 
operator. In 1852 he again visited Europe and at that time was 
elected a corresponding member of the Surgical Society of Paris. 
In 1866 he again spent several months in Europe, but returned in 
the latter part of summer, leaving his family in Paris. During 
the summer cholera had broken out in Chicago, but it ceased about 
the middle of August; however, about October 1; the disease sud- 
denly developed with renewed virulence, causing about 1,000 deaths 
before the end of the month, and among the victims was Dr. Brain- 
ard. On the afternoon of Oct. 9, 1866, he digressed from the sub- 
ject of his lecture in Push Medical College to tell the class how 
to guard themselves against the cholera, and before he retired late 
that evening he began an article on this subject, the first page of 
which we now have in the archives of the College. He went to 
bed apparently in perfect health, but near morning had an attack 
of diarrhea which he checked with opiates. However, he arose as 
usual the next morning and had no symptoms of sickness until 9 
o'clock, when he was suddenly attacked with vomiting and diarrhea. 
My uncle and other members of the faculty were called, but by 
2 o'clock he was in collapse and seven hours later he ceased to 
breathe. 

This melancholy event created a profound sensation in the com- 
munity. The day was dark and gloomy, the epidemic was at its 
height, and the emblems of mourning overshadowed the public 
buildings in memory of the officers of the city government whom

the pestilence had stricken. Many members of the medical pro- 
fession gathered at the Court House in testimonial of their respect 
for the honored dead, and on the morrow a large assembly at St. 
James' Church told how deeply was felt the loss that had been 
sustained. At the meeting of the profession a committee of five 
was appointed to draw up resolutions expressive of their sorrow 
and sense of loss. Three of this committee, viz., Drs. Hosnier A. 
Johnson, Charles Gilman Smith and G. C. Paoli, I counted among 
my friends in the early years of my practice, and I feel sure they 
were sincere in their expressions about Dr. Brainard. Dr. Paoli 
voiced the opinion of the profession in the following words : 

"He was no ordinary man. Highly gifted by nature, his powers 
were cultivated by study, and from pure love of the profession he 
devoted himself with untiring zeal to the work of instruction. As 
a surgeon he had few equals, as an operator he was cool, cautious 
and bold. As a lecturer, he possessed to a remarkable degree the 
rare talent of profound clearness in communicating his ideas to 
his listeners * * * and excelled all other lecturers I have heard 
in condensing the greatest amount of instruction in the fewest 
words." 

Physically, Dr. Brainard was tall, well proportioned, and strongly 
built.- He was dignified almost to reserve, and among those who 
did not know him, this gave him the reputation of being cross and 
crabbed, but this was an error. His words were few but to the 
point. One of the old alumni writes, "His appearance in the class 
room was quiet and unassuming. Without; preliminaries he 
announced his subject, and in a concise manner proceeded to eluci- 
date his theme, with which he was always perfectly familiar; his 
teaching was exceedingly plain and practical and. free from techni- 
calities. As a public speaker he was forceful and always com- 
manded attention. Although the rules of aseptic and antiseptic 
surgery were then unknown, he was extremely particular in his 
operations to have well cleansed apparatus, hands and instruments/' 

At the time of his death he had been engaged on an extensive 
surgical work which remained unfinished, but those who heard him 
and witnessed his skill as an operator remember him as one of the 
most eminent American surgeons. He was a close student, an 
original and independent thinker, and an active investigator. 

In 1849-51 he used solutions of iodin and iodid of potassium 
by injections into serous sacks on the theory that changing the 
quality of the fluid would stop further effusion and promote absorp- 
tion, and he adopted this method for the cure of spina bifida. He 
also made numerous experiments with various substances in the 
hope of finding a cure for cancer. He applied these directly or 
injected them into the blood current. At that time he treated 
cancer, when practicable, by removing the growths thoroughly, and, 
*fter what seemed successful experimentation on animals, bv-the' 



RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 5 

administration of lactate of iron by the stomach and by injections 
of the same, every six to ten days, into the veins. Most of these 
cases seemed to improve for a time, but afterward lapsed into the 
previous condition. One fact, ,h owe ver, was developed by the injec- 
tions, namely, that some substances may be thrown with perfect 
safety directly into the venous blood, which if injected into an 
artery or into areolar tissue would produce most destructive results. 
Several times during these experiments a few drops of lactate of 
iron which were allowed to infiltrate areolar tissue invariably 
destroyed it, leaving an ulcerated surface. His treatment for 
ununited fractures is the best known of his surgical achievements; 
but his most important work and one that has had a greater influ- 
ence on the medical profession than he ever dreamed of, was the 
founding of Bush Medical College. The charter of this institution 
was granted by the legislature of Illinois in March, 1837, but the 
trustees did not appoint a permanent faculty until October, 1843. 
The first session of the institution was opened Dec. 4, 1843, at 
which time Prof. Brainard delivered the inaugural lecture. In 
that address, on the first day of the first session of Bush Medical 
College, he said: 

"We have chosen the subject of institutions of science, their 
influence in a community, and their claims on the fostering care 
of the public * * * because of. the sovereign influence exercised 
by public opinion which holds the place of supreme power in our 
own country." Elsewhere such "appeals of argument or persuasion" 
were addressed to governments where princes or the munificence 
of private individuals laid the foundations of universities, while in 
this country "but especially in the West, is it essential that the 
public mind should be directed to the founding * * * of institu- 
tions of science." 

"It were easy to see that every class of citizens is interested in 
the establishment of a medical school at this time and place. We 
might appeal to men of business and capital, and by rigid calcu- 
lation of the advantage of such institutions, convince them that 
it is to their interest to aid in this promotion. We might point 
them to Louisville or Lexington where, without many of the advan- 
tages of location which we possess, schools have been established 
which contribute materially to the prosperity of those cities. 

"We might appeal to the poor. The establishment of a hospital 
or dispensary where they may receive gratuitous aid without sub- 
jecting themselves to disagreeable personal obligations, or being 
associated with public paupers, is an essential part of our under- 
taking. We might appeal to the benevolent. What heart sharing 
the common sentiment of humanity but would delight in contribut- 
ing to an undertaking whose sole result is the relief of suffering." 

In pointing out the advantage to young men of a medical school 
in this community he said, "I might bring forward in our own 



G RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

profession the example of the first and greatest of its minds, that 
of John Hunter, who was a cabinetmaker before commencing his 
studies. * * * Velpeau, one of the most eminent of living sur- 
geons, was also a mechanic, and I have heard him * * * speak of 
the time when he was a blacksmith." 

"The health, the happiness and the life of your dearest friends, 
and your own, may, and will, some day depend on the skill of some 
member of the medical profession," and this thought we wish to 
impress on the public mind to-day in urging the supreme impor- 
tance of the highest type of medical education in this city. 

He continued: "To elevate the standard of skill and knowledge 
in the profession, to excite an honorable emulation among its mem- 
bers, to disseminate in this new region the principles of medical 
science in its perfected state — such are the objects held in view 
by the founders of this institution." 

How well this ideal has been followed by the men who have 
devoted their lives to this work during the sixty-nine years that 
have elapsed since these words were uttered is attested by the lives 
and work of thousands of the Alumni of Eush Medical College; 
and to-day the zeal, the devotion and the work of the men who are 
carrying out the objects of the founders of this college are an honor 
to the profession and to the institution which was opened on that 
day. 

He stated that at that time, by some the project was considered 
premature, and it was argued that students could not be obtained, 
teachers procured, or suitable buildings rented, and that it was 
useless to present the advantages of education to the public until 
their physical wants and their resistance to the encroachments of 
hunger and cold were satisfied. He believed the time for such 
objections had passed, and with remarkable assurance and confi- 
dence he said, of that day in the West, and in this city, which 
then had only about 4,500 inhabitants, "Nowhere are the people at 
large so surrounded with the comforts of life; nowhere are there 
such numbers of youth whose means enable them to pursue literary 
studies, whose minds are so open to noble impressions, but with 
so few institutions to lead them on and gratify their desires. The 
present then is emphatically the time when schools of every kind, 
but especially those of the professions, should be established." 

The opinion that suitable teachers' could not be found in the 
West he said, "Is alike unfounded and next to the merit of making 
great discoveries in science is that of extending them in regions 
where they would be otherwise unknown." 

Dr. Brain ard felt very pessimistic regarding the influence of 
national and state examining boards in raising the qualifications 
of physicians, but when we consider the marvelous things that have 
happened during our own lives — things that no one could have 
foreseen, we cannot criticize him for not anticipating the real bene- 



RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 7 

fits, from these sources, that are now apparent, although they did 
not come for nearly half a century. But even to-day the aim of 
most of these boards is far below the ideals for which this insti- 
tution is working. 

At that time he insisted on the importance of preliminary educa- 
tion, high moral character and general culture. He said, "The 
natural qualities most requisite for a physician are, talent of obser- 
vation, industry, resolution and a benevolent disposition/' 

Dr. Brainard firmly believed in specialization, and advised stu- 
dents after having gained a good general knowledge of medicine 
to "Select that branch for which they thought themselves best 
suited and to embrace it in every detail." He said further, "Every 
improvement, moreover, is the result of studies confined to some 
particular subject/' and years afterward he used to say that success 
was assured to the man who knew how to do one thing better than, 
any one else. In an address to the American Dental Association in 
1865, he urged more forcibly the importance of specialization, 
because it was impossible that any man should master medical 
science in all its details, and he named numerous parts of the body 
and several diseased conditions that were worthy of the whole 
time of some men. Among others he spoke of fractures which 
demanded a great deal of special study and better appliances. In 
illustration, he said that a great many appliances used in treating 
fractures of the leg, called "fracture boxes, were no better than 
dry goods boxes, and simply served to conceal from the surgeon 
the position in which the limb might happen to lie," and he said 
that the reason for this was that no man had ever yet devoted 
himself to fractures as a specialty. 

He said, "The principle that I wish particularly to assert is that 
the medical profession in order to be most useful, in order to 
acquire its due influence over the community, in order to perfect 
its knowledge of the nature and treatment of diseases, must adopt 
a special course of study, each individual member embracing that 
course which he judges on the whole to be best adapted to his 
faculties, and leaving out to a certain extent others for which he 
has no qualifications. I advocate special studies and special prac- 
tice, and although the words have been somewhat discredited, I 
advocate specialties and specialists." 

In an address to the graduating class of Eush Medical College, 
session of 1848-49, Dr. Brainard said: 

"In every climate, in every place, wherever disease is found, there 
is a physician striving to relieve it, and whether successful or not, 
his mission is nevertheless divine and charitable, soothing and con- 
soling beyond the power of words to express. * * * Medical science 
embraces every known method of curing disease. Whatever may 
be the principle, if it be found useful it is adopted." 



8 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

This is the foundation on which this institution was laid, and 
on which its instruction has ever been given. We say to you, 
"Prove all things and hold fast to that which is good/' 

In the same address we find a somewhat amusing evidence of 
Dr. Brainard's confidence in Chicago, and in western medical col- 
leges (which at that time meant every one this side of the Alle- 
ghanies). He said, "The statement has recently been made by a 
Dr. Holmes, professor in a not very flourishing medical school at 
Boston, that the multiplication of medical schools at the West is 
doing great mischief in the profession. * * * For a country pos- 
sessing all the advantages for containing a large population, cal- 
culated from extent -and situation to be the center of the republic 
* * * with all its advantages, to be dependent on some villages a 
thousand miles off for its physicians, would certainly present an 
anomaly in the general order of things," and further, "But a few 
years since, the place we inhabit was on the extreme verge of civil- 
ization, and stretching far away to the West was a desert scarcely 
trodden by the foot of civilized man. Now the emigrant turns 
from our crowded streets * * * to the far distant * * * shores 
of the Pacific Ocean." 

To appreciate this you must recollect that Chicago was then a 
town of only a few thousand inhabitants and that it had no rail- 
roads to the east or west, and nothing was known of many mar- 
velous things that have developed during the lifetime of your 
present teachers. 

In the same address he said, "It is now seven years since the 
germ of our medical college was planted" when "six individuals 
were found willing to listen to the teachings of a private course 
on a single seat; the next year another was added and the third 
year some twenty persons were in attendance on our course. * * * 
Step by step has the school advanced, until its alumni constitute a 
large body of the most respectable practitioners of a wide extent of 
country. * * * Our infant institution has already acquired a 
development which is a guarantee of its future advancement. It is 
associated with the destinies of a great and powerful city, and its 
prosperity and continuance will be commensurate with her growth 
and duration. It can never perish." 

To-day it is nearly three quarters of a century since this germ 
was planted. The city with whose destinies it was associated has 
grown from 5,000 to nearly 3,000,000. Our classes gradually 
increased until at one time there were a thousand students in a 
single year, and our alumni, counted by thousands and thousands, 
have occupied the front ranks of the profession not only in this 
country, but they have filled honorable positions all over the earth. 

But far more important than growth in size and numbers has 
been our advance in the character of instruction, in the facilities 
afforded to gain a knowledge of the healing art and in the additions 
which this college is making to medical science.

Dr. Brainard was one of the organizing members of the Illinois 
State Medical Society, and an early member of the American 
Medical Association, of which he was Vice-President in 1850. 

Nov. 28, 1853, Dr. Brainard read before the Academy of Science 
in Paris a paper upon experiments on the venom of rattle-snakes, 
the effects of the venom, and the means of neutralizing its absorp- 
tion, and three months later he presented a paper before the same 
academy by himself and Dr. Greene, upon iodin as an antidote 
for curare. Dec. 6, 1853, he read a paper before the Society of 
Surgery of Paris entitled "On the injection of iodin into tissues 
and cavities of the body for the cure of spina bifida, chronic hydro- 
cephalus, edema, fibrinous effusions, edematous erysipelas, etc., 
etc." At this time he was made a corresponding member of the 
Societe de Chirurgie of Paris. Dr. Brainard was president of the i 
Illinois State Medical Society in 1854. As his presidential address I 
he read a paper entitled, "Essay on a New Method of Treating '• 
Serpent Bite and Other Poisoned Wounds," in which he introduced 
much of the material embodied in his earlier reports in Paris. The 
paper was based on numerous experiments on pigeons, cats, and 
dogs with putrid matter, such as that inocculated in dissecting 
wounds, woorara, and the venom of serpents. He spoke of the 
manufacture and action of woorara, known also as the American 
poison (used on arrows) and gave several reasons for his own belief 
that the active principle of this poison was the venom of serpents, 
as follows: 

1. Its effects on birds and animals are strikingly like those 
produced by the venom of the rattlesnake; and in many cases no 
difference can be perceived between them. 

2. These effects are entirely unlike those produced by the 
vegetable alkaloids. 

3. Iodin neutralizes it as it does the venom of serpents, but 
has no such effect on vegetable alkaloids. 

4. It is like the venom of serpents, inoccuous when taken into 
the stomach, except, perhaps, when used in very large quantities, 
or in circumstances very peculiar. This is not the case with any 
known vegetable poison. 

5. It is well known that the poison used by the North American 
Indians for their arrows is that of the rattlesnake. I have learned 
this from such varied sources as to leave no doubt on the subject. 

His third reason is of special interest because of the positive 
statement regarding the effects of iodin in neutralizing poisons. 

His method of treatment consisted of "application of cups on the 
part, or of ligatures around the member wounded, so as to arrest 
absorption, and injecting or infiltrating into the subcutaneous tissue 
the solution used as an antidote." 

He directed that the cups be applied a short time before the 
solution was employed, so as to fill the tissues with fluids, and 



10 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

prevent the injected liquid from producing abscess by mechanical 
injur}'. The cups were kept on five or ten minutes after the antidote 
had been injected in order to allow time for it to come in contact 
with the poison before it entered the circulation; but where much 
swelling and effusion had taken place before treatment could be 
applied, the application of cups was unnecessary, as the fluid 
injected would in that case pass freely through the tissues without 
the cupping. 

He used as the antidote a solution of iodin gr. x and iodid of 
potassium gr. xxx in an ounce of distilled water. In recent cases 
he advised that 1 dram of this solution be injected, if necessary at 
several points, so as to infiltrate the tissues with it for the space of 
on inch around the wound. He also applied the solution on the 
surface. In cases where there was already extensive swelling he 
reduced the strength of the solution by diluting it three or four 
times, but he does not state whether he used more or less of the 
solution. 

For injecting the fluid he employed a small trochar to which, 
after it had been introduced, he fitted a syringe that had been filled 
with the solution. The solution was gently pressed in drop by 
drop. At thaj; time there were no hypodermic syringes such as we 
now have, and cups were in common use. Many of you may never 
have seen a cup used, and very few physicians now possess these 
instruments; but it seems to me that with a hypodermic syringe 
the tissues could be easily and quickly infiltrated with the solution, 
without cupping, and you will note that when swelling had already 
occurred he did not consider the cupping necessary. 

As iodin attacks nickel and some other irietals very quickly, it 
would be best to have a glass hypodermic syringe. The needle 
might possibly be ruined ; however, I have used hypodermic needles 
with solutions of iodin repeatedly without injuring them very much. 

This treatment never came into general use ; indeed, I doubt very 
much whether many physicians have ever heard of it; but it proved 
so very effective in his experiments that I have great confidence in 
it and whenever I travel in regions where there is danger of snake 
bite I carry with me a solution of iodin and a hypodermic syringe 
instead of a bottle of whisky, and I earnestly urge physicians to 
adopt this method of treating poisoned wounds. It would doubtless 
be equally effective in the prevention of rabies if it could be 
promptly applied, and I believe it should be used for dog bites 
instead of the forms of cauterization that are commonly applied. 

Dr. Brainard stated that not more than one in ten of the wounds 
caused by the most venomous serpents proved fatal. His exper- 
iments seemed to prove that the methods of cauterization with 
nitrate of silver, ammonia or the mineral acids did not in any way 
antidote the poison, and had no influence excepting possibly in 
limiting the amount of absorption. The influence in this direction

would be nothing whatever if a few minutes had elapsed after the 
injury before the treatment could be applied. His experiments 
caused him to say with reference to the very free use of alcoholic 
stimulants as an antidote for snake bite, that they did not prevent 
but sometimes hastened death. 

He carefully described his experimental technic and the effects of 
the venom on the blood, and repeated his experiments before the 
society. Among his conclusions he states thai to be effective the 
antidote must be infiltrated into the tissues, and that "this infiltra- 
tion can be performed without causing loss of substance or pro- 
ducing either eschar or suppuration." I am pleased to note that 
he freely acknowledged his indebtedness to the late Dr. Hosmer 
A. Johnson of this city, who assisted him in his experiments, and 
to others who had contributed in some way to this research. 

I wish to-day to impress on each of you that the man who 
attempts to further his own reputation by neglecting to give all 
possible credit to others is making a great mistake, and I wish 
specially to urge you to ever manifest the magnanimous spirit so 
constantly shown by. the heads of our pathologic and medical 
departments, and others of my colleagues, in giving the fullest 
credit to their subordinates. 

In the article just referred to, we find that Dr. Brainard by his 
experiments discovered the surpassing value of iodin as an antisep- 
tic, although he did not know the bacteriologic reasons for its 
effectiveness, that were discovered a quarter of a century later by 
Pasteur, and which were first applied in surgery by Lister. 

At the meeting of the American Medical Association in St, Louis 
in 1854, the Committee on Prize Essays reported that nine 
essays had been submitted, but that they had awarded only one 
premium, which was to the essay entitled "An Essay on a New 
Method of Treating Ununited Fractures and Certain Deformities 
of the Osseous System." The sealed envelope accompanying this 
essay was then broken and ~ the author found to be Daniel Brainard, 
M.D., of Chicago. This essay appears in the Transactions of the 
American Medical Association for that year. It bore a motto in 
French of the Sixteenth Century from Ambrose Pare, which liber- 
ally rendered into modern English reads: "And notwithstanding 
all the pains I have heretofore taken, I have reason to praise God, 
in that it hath pleased Him to call me to that branch of medical 
practice, commonly called Surgery, which can neither be bought by 
gold nor by silver, but by industry alone and long experience." The 
essay occupies forty-four pages of the Transactions^ and is one of 
the classical medical articles of America. The object of the essay, 
as stated in the introduction, is (1) To establish, by experiment, 
the principles upon which the treatment of ununited fractures 
should be conducted, and to show that these principles are applicable 
to the human subject. (2) To propose a new method of treatment 



12 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

for certain deformities which result from true ankylosis, union of 
fractures in an angular position, rachitic curvature, etc. The article 
is illustrated by nineteen copper plates designed from Nature. 

Earlier in the year Dr. Brainard had published a similar article 
in French entitled "Memoire sur le traitement des fractures non- 
reunies et des difformites des os," but this was less complete than 
the prize essay, and was distributed only to scientific societies and 
a few friends. 

On the treatment of non-uniting fractures, he said, "Without 
doubt the aim should be to place the old fracture in the condition 
of a simple and recent fracture without contusion and disorder of 
the soft parts. In oblique fractures, I pierce the skin with an 
instrument (a perforator of my own invention) in a manner which 
will permit me to pierce the extremities of the fragments of bone, 
Co freshen their surfaces, and pass through the tissues that are 
formed between them. .After this first operation, I disengage the 
instrument from the bone without taking it from the skin. I then 
change its direction, and make a new perforation, and I repeat 
this as often as I judge necessary. In most cases it is preferable 
to commence by two or three perforations only, in order that effects 
produced may not be too energetic * on removing the instrument one 
will take care to apply collodion over the skin wound." In non- 
oblique fractures the technic was somewhat different. He said that 
division of the callous alone has little effect if the bony surfaces 
are not rasped at the same time, but he demonstrated by experiment 
that if one makes several deep wounds in the bone, durable results 
will be obtained which will lead to a good result and put the frag- 
ments in favorable condition for reunion. After the operation it 
is necessary to apply splints or a convenient apparatus to immobilize 
the parts, and it will be necessary at times to make other punctures. 
In none of his experiments on dogs and rabbits were necrosis, sup- 
puration or intense inflammation produced. He says : "It shows us 
that the small parcels of bone left in place of the perforator do not 
suffice to produce suppuration, and far from retarding a cure, it is 
very probable that these small fragments acting as foreign bodies, 
which can be absorbed or unite themselves to the bone, have a great 
influence on the result and success of the operation. These effects 
are so rapid that in the cases where I have employed my method, a 
week has never passed without a decisive amelioration. This has 
led me to believe that it is a good procedure to hasten the union of 
simple fractures as well as those which have been greatly retarded." 
Here follows citation of cases, treated and cured by his method, 
then follows a chapter on subcutaneous perforation applied to the 
treatment of certain deformities, with copper-plate illustrations. 

These various activities gave Dr. Brainard an international repu- 
tation, not only as a surgeon, but as an investigator. In 1855 the 
Chair of Surgery in the University of Pennsylvania was vacant, 



RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 13 

due to the resignation of Professor Gibson. Dr. Brainard was a 
candidate for the appointment, and was the almost unanimous 
choice of the faculty and was by them recommended to the trustees. 
"Personal considerations, however, and other influences, prevailed 
with the trustees, rather than the wishes of the faculty," and Dr. 
Henry H. Smith of Philadelphia was elected Professor of Surgery. 

In the Illini, Clark E. Carr describes a trip during the Civil War 
on a river boat from Cairo to Savannah where the wounded had 
been taken from Pittsburg Landing. He speaks of Dr. Brainard 
several times, once as follows : "At the head of the corps of sur- 
geons was Dr. Daniel Brainard, the most -eminent surgeon in 
Chicago." 

In closing I wish again to quote from Dr. Brainard's words which 
are as appropriate now as they were true, when he spoke them to 
the graduating class of 1849. He said : "To you, young gentlemen, 
about to enter on the practical duties of life in a profession so use- 
ful, honorable, and charitable as ours, life seems to present attrac- 
tions not often found in similar circumstances. The field of use- 
fulness is rich, vast as the ambition of man can desire. Your life, 
if you worthily follow your profession, is to be one of perpetual 
charity, of daily relief to suffering. * * * In proportion as you 
devote yourself to it, will be the return you may expect to receive. 
Set your mark high. Fear no obstacles. * * * Whatever may 
be the result no pursuit is more worthy of Occupying your lives 
than the acquisition of knowledge and its application to the relief 
of human suffering." 



THE FIEST PEEIOD IN THE HISTOEY OF RUSH 
MEDICAL COLLEGE, 1843 - 1859 x 

GEORGE H. WEAVER, M.D., 1889 

Since Dean Sumner is to speak to you of "Medicine and Matri- 
mony," it may be wise to make a frank confession and so forestall 
any criticism of our Alma Mater on that score. You may not all 
know that Eush has had a rather varied matrimonial experience. 

In 1862 when she was at the romantic age of 19, she apparently 
carried on a very active flirtation with the Catholic University of 
St. Mary's of the Lake, which was about her own age, and the first 
institution of higher learning in Chicago. That University, in its 
announcement for 1862-63, represents Eush as its medical depart- 
ment. Since Eush in her announcements never refers to this we 
may infer that the University mistook an ardent flirtation on the 
part of our youthful mater for a marriage. About twelve years

14 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

later, when our Alma Mater had reached the more mature age of 
30 years, her susceptible nature was again flattered by having 
showered on her the advances of the first university of Chicago. 
The sixteenth annual catalogue of the University of Chicago for 
1874-75 announces Eush Medical College as the Medical Depart- 
ment of the University. In this instance also it appears that the 
graciousness with which the advances of the University were received 
was mistaken for an acceptance, and so in anticipation of an early 
marriage, a union was publicly announced instead of an engagement 
as won Id have been wiser, for our Alma Mater, again, availing her- 
self of her feminine prerogative, changed her mind and no union 
took place. For another period of thirteen years Eush now went 
her own way. During this time it is likely that she manifested 
more than a friendly interest in her latter suitor, for it was only 
after the University of Chicago was reported to be deceased that 
she took notice of the attentions directed toward her by Lake Forest 
University. Eush had now reached the mature age of 45, and 
perhaps fearing to longer delay a definite alliance, in 1887 became 
the medical department of Lake Forest University. This union 
endured for eleven years when a divorce was secured "on mutual 
agreement." Fortunately the Presbyterian and not the Anglican 
dispensation was to be consulted, else a sufficient reason for a divorce 
might have been lacking. It is our belief that the real cause for 
the action has been suppressed. At the time of the union of Eush 
and Lake Forest University, the latter was a widower, having been 
previously united to what "was later known as the Chicago Medical 
College, which was a daughter of Eush. Since the University had 
long since legally changed its former name of Lind University to 
Lake Forest University, it is likely that Eush did not realize that 
she was marrying her son-in-law, and on discovering this eleven 
years later, she immediately took steps to have the marriage quietly 
annulled. Subsequent developments, however, make us strongly 
suspect that our Alma Mater was making up to her old friend, /the 
University of Chicago, even before her separation from Lake Forest 
University. Two years after Eush had united with the Presbyterian 
University, the University of Chicago, which was supposed to have 
been dead, reappeared and was reported to have "struck oil." 
Within a year after securing her divorce, the engagement of Eush 
to the University of Chicago was announced. This engagement 
has now lasted about fourteen years, the tying of the nuptial knot 
having been delayed because of some differences regarding the 
dowry. With our Alma Mater at the age of 70, her children are 
naturally solicitous that she shall make no further mistakes in her 
matrimonial ventures. 

Dr. Ingals has spoken at length this afternoon of Dr. Daniel 
Braihard, the founder of Eush Medical College. I shall speak of 
the men associated with him in the Eush faculty, and of the work 



RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 15 

which they did, confining myself to the period of sixteen years dur- 
ing which there was but one medical college in Chicago. 

Carlyle has said, "Universal history, the history of what man 
has accomplished in this world, is at bottom the history of the 
great men who have worked here. They were the leaders of men, 
these great ones, the modelers, patterns, and in a wide sense crea- 
tors, of whatever the general mass of men contrived to do or to 
attain. One comfort is that great men, taken up in any way, are 
profitable company. We cannot look, however imperfectly, on a 
great man, without gaining something by him." 

It is my hope that you may gain some pleasure and profit from 
my imperfect sketch of these early men and times. 

When Br. Brainard came to Chicago in 1835, he was 23 years 
of age, and had graduated in medicine one and a half years before. 
He probably came from Detroit on the back of a pony, and he found 
Chicago a town of about 2,000 persons. Two years before the last 
great Indian council had been held in Chicago and the following 
year the last of the Indians left the country around the head of 
Lake Michigan, which they had inhabited for some two hundred 
years, for their new home beyond the Mississippi. It was seventeen 
years later that a railroad from the East reached Chicago, and 
nineteen years later that one was completed between Chicago and 
Milwaukee. Thirteen years later, a student in Eush College, 
Ambrose Jones, who is still alive in his 93d year, received the first 
telegraph message from Milwaukee to Chicago, which read : 
"Milwaukee with her 14,000, sends to Chicago with her 17,000, 
greetings." 

With prophetic vision Dr. Brainard foresaw a great future for 
Chicago, and realized that it would be the natural location for 
the medical school of this section. Consequently he secured a 
charter for Eush Medical College in 1837, expecting to organize 
the faculty when the opportune moment arrived. 

In 1843 circumstances were such that he realized the necessity 
for moving in the matter. He would have preferred delaying longer 
but the organization of medical schools in several small towns in 
the adjacent country forced him to come forward with his school 
before the less suitably located ones had secured a firm footing. 

The group of men which he brought together was no ordinary 
one, for the Eush faculty in its early years consisted of young men 
who were carefully selected with regard to ability to teach and to 
secure the confidence of the profession. This selection was made 
almost entirely by Dr. Brainard, and one of his strong character- 
istics was his ability to judge men, and to inspire them with his 
own enthusiasm and ideals. 

In looking over this group of men one is struck by the fact that 
they were young. Of the fourteen men who were teachers with 
professorial rank in these first sixteen years of Bush's history, the 



10 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

term of service began in the ease of four below 30 years and in 
eight between 30 and 36 years. 2 Most of them had had previous 
experience in teaching and had shown the stuff of which they were 
made. Several had secured their education amid very adverse cir- 
cumstances, and were able to add to the enthusiasm and adapta- 
bility of youth, the perseverance which comes from meeting and 
overcoming difficulties. These men were generous-spirited and were 
ever ready to serve the public and the profession. They were fore- 
most in movements to secure hospitals and other conveniences and 
necessities for the care of the sick. In matters of public health, 
they not only furnished advice but aided by personal efforts. One 
member of this group is recognized as father of the American 
Medical Association and many were active in forwarding the aims, 
of that organization in its early years. The first president of the 
Illinois State Medical Society was chosen from the Rush faculty 
and of the five standing committees, the chairman of three were 
Rush professors and of one, a Bush graduate. 3 These men loyally 
supported the State Society in the years when attendance at the 
meetings required long trips by stage or with teams across the 
country. They could not take a sleeper at night and return the 
next night after having relieved themselves of the burden of a 
paper. Attendance meant a week of valuable time. 

Another activity of the members of the faculty which was carried 
on by them for many years at a personal financial loss was the pub- 
lication of a medical journal. 4 This journal, begun in 1844, was 
the first and for many years the only medical journal published in 
the Northwest. It was a means of communication among the doc- 
tors of the region, and a place for the publication of the papers and 
experiences of the men of this section which contained many edu- 
cated and efficient practitioners. Edited at different times by vari- 
ous members of the faculty, it was a powerful factor in the educa- 
tion of the medical men of the Northwest, and in building up a 
spirit of interest and pride in local institutions. It was an able 
champion of higher medical education. It is now a valuable store- 
house of information on the diseases prevalent in early days along 
the rivers and on the prairies of this region. A fairly complete 
history of medicine in Chicago and the surrounding country could 
be compiled from information found in its volumes. 

Some of the men in this group were original investigators of 
real merit and they stimulated similar efforts among their students.

Compared with present standards, their college did not have a 
very complete equipment, but the most was made of what they had. 
After careful survey of the teachers on the faculties of American 
medical schools of the period under consideration, I believe that 
the group of men of whom we are speaking contained as efficient 
teachers as were found anywhere in the land. 

Let us recall some of the memorable things associated with these 
men as they pass rapidly before us. 5 

Daniel Brainard (1812-1866), Professor of Surgery (1843-1866), was 
the founder of Rush Medical College, and its success is largely due to him. 
He was looked up to by the faculty, admired and loved by the students, a 
profound student of surgery, a skillful investigator, the best known sur- 
geon of the Western country for many years, a most forceful, efficient and 
inspiring teacher. His scientific work attracted world-wide attention, his 
influence has probably reached farther and been of more fundamental 
value than that of any other medical man of the West. 

Jas. Van Zandt Blaney (1820-1874), Professor of Chemistry (1843- 
1874). A graduate of Princeton College and of the Medical Department 
of the University of Pennsylvania in 1842. With Dr. Brainard he was 
most active in the organization and development of Rush. He was one of 
the most popular teachers on the faculty. He began the publication of 
the first medical journal of the Northwest. As an analytical chemist he 
acquired an international reputation. He served as Surgeon and Medical 
Director during the civil war, and at its close was delegated to pay off 
the medical officers of the Northwest, thus disbursing $600,000. 

John McLean (1814-1879), Professor of the Theory and Practice of 
Medicine, and of Materia Medica and Therapeutics (1843-1854). He 
secured his education entirely by personal efforts, taking his medical 
degree from Castleton, Vt. He was an excellent teacher and much liked 
by his students. 

These three men, together with M. L. Knapp, of whom I can learn 
nothing, and A. H. Davison, who was Prosector of Anatomy, formed the 
original faculty in days when the teaching force in American medical 
schools could be counted on the fingers of one hand. 

The second year there appeared the names of Austin Flint, G. N. Fitch 
and W. B. Herrick. 

Austin Flint, Sr. (1812-1886), Professor of Institutes and Practice of 
Medicine (1844-1845). Pie was educated at Harvard. Subsequently he 
taught in several medical schools and finally became Professor of Principles 
and Practice of Medicine in Bellevue Hospital, New York. He has left 
his name indelibly stamped on American medical literature. 

Graham N. Fitch (1808-1892), Professor of Obstetrics and Diseases of 
Women and Children (1844-1849). He was educated at Geneva College and 
the College of Physicians and Surgeons of New York. He was an active 
factor, not only in medicine but also in politics. From 1856 to 1861 he 
was United States Senator from Indiana. His medical writings show him 
to have been a keen observer and clear thinker. 

William B. Herrick (1813-1865), Professor of Anatomy and later of 
Physiology (1844-1857). Educated at Bowdoin and Dartmouth Colleges. 
During Dr. Brainard's absence he acceptably filled the chair of surgery. 
He was the first president of the Illinois State Medical Society. He served 
as surgeon in the Mexican War and never recovered his health afterward. 
He was a good teacher and exerted much influence on his students. 



5. M. L. Knapp was one of the original faculty, but I have been unable to 
learn anything of him. 



18 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

In 1845-6, John Evans appears among the faculty. 

■John Evans (1814-1897), Professor of Obstetrics and Diseases of Women 
and Children (1845-1857). Largely through his influence the first insane 
hospital in Indiana was established. He invented and described an "obstet- 
rical extractor" which was used with much success and was designed to 
replace the forceps in certain conditions. He was a skillful teacher and 
as editor of The Journal, wrote some very forceful editorials which show 
high ideals regarding medical education and the relation of physicians to 
the public and to each other. He was always active in the organization 
of public charitable institutions. In 1862 he was appointeed by President 
Lincoln Territorial Governor of Colorado and later served as United States 
Senator from that commonwealth. On his eightieth birthday in 1894, 
special honor was done him by the city of Denver. 

During 1846-7, Samuel G. Armour (1819-1885) delivered a course of 
lectures on physiology, but he was unable to accept the chair offered 
because he had previously accepted one elsewhere. After teaching in 
several schools, in 1866 he was elected Professor of Materia Medica and 
General Pathology in Long Island College Hospital of Brooklyn, where he 
succeeded Austin Flint, Sr., as Professor of the Practice of Medicine. He 
was a most successful teacher. 

In 1849-50 the names of Thomas Spencer and Nathan S. Davis are 
added to the faculty. 

Thos. Spencer (1798-1857), Professor of Principles and practice of 
Medicine (1849-1851). He was the only man who had passed 40 years 
when he entered the teaching body of Rush. He had twice served as 
President of the State Medical Society of New York, and was well known 
as an author, having published a book on cholera at the time of the first 
American epidemic in 1833. He had been largely instrumental in estab- 
lishing Geneva College, in which he was Professor of Theory and Practice 
of Medicine for 15 years. He also served as surgeon for one and a half 
years in the Mexican War. He was a clear thinker, an able writer and 
exerted a strong influence over the numerous students and practitioners 
of his time. 

Nathan S. Davis (1817-1904), Professor of Physiology and Pathology 
and Practice of Medicine (1849-1859). Born in a log cabin, educated in 
a country medical school, he rounded out his education by personal efforts. 
He early exhibited ability as a writer and organizer. He has been called 
the "father of the American Medical Association." He was an ardent 
advocate of higher medical education and of the application of pedagogical 
methods to medical instruction. Two books of medical history, written 
by him, are now classics. One, a History of the Medical Profession in 
America, published in 1850, was the first medical book printed in Chicago. 
The other is a History of the American Medical Association, published in 
1855. He was popular as a teacher and beloved by his students. 

In 1850 James Warren Freer appears on the faculty as Demonstrator 
of Anatomy. 

Jas. W. Freer (1816-1877), Professor of Anatomy (1855-1877). One 
year after his graduation he was appointed Demonstrator of Anatomy in 
Rush, winning the place by concours, the position being ably contested 
by Dr. E. S. Cooper, later the distinguished Prof. E. S. of San Francisco. 
In 1855 he became Professor of Anatomy, thus being the first alumnus to 
become a professor in the Alma Mater. During the Civil War he served 
as enrolling surgeon for the Chicago district. A recent writer who knew 
him as a student has said "Freer was' one of the most unassuming and 
one of the most substantial men I ever knew. He was a great practitioner 
and a good teacher and was greatly beloved and honored in his time." 

In 1855 Hosmer A. Johnson was made Professor of Materia Medica 
and Medical Jurisprudence. 



RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 19 

Hosmer A. Johnson (1822-1891), Professor of Materia Medica and 
Medical Jurisprudence and Physiology and Pathology (1855-1859). He 
had graduateed from Rush the preceding year and was the second Rush 
alumnus to become a professor in the school. For four years he was 
associated with Professor Herrick and Professor Davis as editor of The 
Journal. He was always active in scientific societies. He was recognized 
as one of the best educated and most talented physicians of Chicago. 

In 1857, the last two men added to the faculty during this period 
appeared in the persons of William H. Byford and John H. Rauch. 

William H. Byford (1817-1890), Professor of Obstetrics and Diseases 
of Women and Children (1857-1859; 1879-1890), was already 40 years 
of age and had had considerable previous experience in teaching. He 
acquired a world-wide reputation and after an absence of twenty years, 
returned to Rush where he taught until his death. 

John H. Rauch (1828-1894), Professor of Materia Medica and Medical 
Jurisprudence (1857-1859), was a graduate of the University of Pennsyl- 
vania, was one of the organizing members of the Iowa State Medical 
Society, and the first delegate from that society to the American Medical 
Association. He was Professor of Materia Medica and Medical Juris- 
prudence. In 1861 he entered the army as surgeon and served through 
the Civil War. His great work was the promotion of higher medical 
education. 

This embraces the men who occupied positions of professors 
in Kush up to 1859, during the first period of her history. The 
second period begins with the withdrawal of three members of the 
faculty and the organization of a daughter medical school. The 
break in the ranks of the Rush faculty was almost immediately 
filled with efficient men and the progress of the institution was 
not impeded. As parents do not always appreciate the influences 
which lead children to leave their home and branch forth in untried 
paths, but still they rejoice in their success, so Rush is glad that 
out of the separation of her family ultimate good came. Since 
that day other sons of Rush have rendered valuable services in the; 
new household, and in return Rush has received into her own 
family grandchildren who have become her present most accom- 
plished professor of chemistry, one of her most brilliant professors 
of surgery, a scholarly professor of medicine, and her present incom- 
parable dean. 

When I began outlining something to say on this occasion, I 
proposed to include some remarks on early individual alumni. I 
soon found this would take too much time. I am glad of this 
opportunity to state that I am collecting biographical sketches, 
portraits and diplomas of deceased alumni for preservation and 
to beg the aid of living alumni in this undertaking. 

May I mention one name which appears among the students for 
1852-53? I can do this without slight to the others, because no 
other belongs to the same class. It is Emery Blackwell/ the first 
woman admitted to a medical school in Chicago. The State Med- 
ical Society criticised Rush so severely for allowing a woman to 
study medicine within her walls that Miss Blackwell was not 



20 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

allowed to return and graduate. In 1876, one of the Eush fac- 
ulty, Professor J. W- Freer, selected Dr. Sarah Hackett Stevenson 
as his substitute to represent the State Society in the American 
Medical Association, and she was seated after considerable opposi- 
tion, and Illinois was thus the first state to be represented in the 
Association by a woman. During the life of the Women's Medical 
College of Chicago, the members of the Eush faculty were largely 
represented in its faculty. When this school was closed, a short 
time after its union with the Northwestern University, and women 
were denied the advantages of its medical school, Eush opened her 
doors to them, placing them on an equality with men. 

Of the Eush Alumni I can only say that from the first they have 
given their Alma Mater every reason for pride. They have been 
most prominent in organizing and supporting medical societies in 
the whole western country, even to the Pacific Ocean. In every 
state and almost in every village of this territory their influence 
has been felt for good. Many of the early graduates were men 
who had been forced to make their own way, and often had secured 
a preliminary education as thorough as was offered at the time. 
A good many paid for their medical education by teaching school 
and by giving popular scientific lectures. They were thus not only 
educated from books, but also had the advantage of that experience 
which comes from contact with the practical problems of life. 

Great success in surgery fell to the lot of Eush graduates from 
the beginning. The teaching of the master bore much fruit. The 
first graduate of the college, William Butterfield, lost his health 
in the service of his country in the Mexican War, and one of the 
members of the second class, William Fosdick, died of yellow fever 
while acting as surgeon in the same war. They were two of the 
790 young men from Chicago, 290 of whom never came home. 

A very large proportion of the early graduates of whom I have 
learned served in the Civil War. Many attained high rank and 
honor for valuable service; some did not return. A few wore the 
gray, most the blue, but all ministered to the wounded and sick 
without any regard to the uniform they wore. They have also not 
been less heroic in times of peace. I know of three early alumni 
who within a year of their graduation fell victims to Asiatic cholera 
in or near Chicago contracted in their care of the stricken. 

Dr. Ingals and I sent a letter to the 125 alumni of Eush who 
are living, so far as the College records show, and who were students 
during the life of Dr. Brainard. Eeplies were received from over 
thirty. In these letters written by men who passed from the teach- 
ing of Daniel Brainard, from forty-seven to sixty-five years ago, 
there is expressed without exception the highest regard, respect, 
esteem and admiration for their old teacher. They speak of his 
interest and kindness to them as students, of his gentleness to 
children and consideration of women patients. One says, "Brain- 



RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 21 

ard was the idol which we all worshiped/ 7 and another, "1 never 
met one who had ]ost any of the old time admiration we had hack 
in those days." They speak of the vividness with which his teach- 
ing and inspiring example has remained with them through all 
the }^ears. May Bush never lack teachers who have the ability and 
purpose not only to teach young men the science of medicine but 
also to inspire in them high ideals and ambitions so that her alumni 
of the present and future may measure up to the standard set by 
those of the past. 

In closing may I quote from an address by the late Professor 
Senn delivered on his assuming the Professorship of Surgery in 
Ensh in 1891? He says: "Brainard, the founder of this institution 
and the first occupant of the chair of surgery, was a great surgeon, 
a gifted teacher and an original investigator. His giant intellect 
was not content in acquiring, practising and teaching what was 
known at his time, but sought new fields for exploration, and the 
knowledge thus gained was freely infused into his students. Brain- 
ard's work in the field of experimental surgery brought him an 
international fame and his name will be quoted as long as books 
on surgery will be printed. His work has not only left numerous 
permanent impressions on surgical literature, but it created a stim- 
ulus which took possession of students and the progressive surgeons 
throughout the civilized world, leading them away from the old 
well-worn paths into new, unexplored territories awaiting the 
advance column of original explorers. It is difficult to estimate 
the importance and magnitude of his work in this direction, but 
hundreds of his students scattered all over this country still remain 
living witnesses of his zeal, industry and ability as a surgeon, 
teacher and scientist. They are to be envied for having received 
their first surgical knowledge from one of the greatest, and cer- 
tainly the most original surgeon that America has yet produced."

BUSINESS MEETING H 

Tuesday, 3 P. M. 
The classday exercises of the Senior Class were held in the Upper 
Amphitheater. 

The class tablet was unveiled. Professor Herrick made the speech 
of acceptance. T. C. Galloway, ? 12 Class President, presented the 
tablet. The class motto is "Sympathy and Help." 

Wednesday, 5 P. M. 
The annual business meeting of the Alumni Association was held 
in the Auditorium in a room south of the ninth floor banquet hall. 
There was a large attendance, especially of the older Alumni. The 
minutes and reports will be published in the next issue of the 
Bulletin, as this issue is devoted largely to Brainard matter. 



PRESIDENT'S REPORT 
JOHN PvITTEK, M.D. 

When you elected me your President a year ago, I expressed my- 
self in terms somewhat ambiguous, uncertain if I should look on 
your selection with favor or otherwise, not knowing at the time how 
much you expected of me, or how much labor the position really 



24 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

required. In looking about I soon concluded that with the able 
corps of officers which you had selected to assist, with your individ- 
ual assistance and support, I could be assured that the coming 
annua] meeting of the Alumni Association, the meeting of 
1912, would be a grand success. This afternoon meeting speaks 
jn unmistakable terms for or against this success. That your elected 
officers have all been faithful to their trust I need not remind you. 
You have heard your Treasurer's and Executive Chairman's report, 
your Necrologist's report, the report from the Chairman of the 
Fellowship Committee and the character of these separate reports 
all bespeak for themselves an amount of work well clone, done in 
the interest of our beloved Alumni Association. Much time and 
self-sacrificing devotion has been given fhis our mutual interests by 
these our servants and they 'all deserve our esteem, respect, and 
thanks for this labor so well performed. 

As retiring President, I deem it my imperative duty and in the 
interest of our Association to call your attention to a few points 
which to my mind are of the utmost importance to us all. 

1. Alumni Eeunions. — Eeunions at the various state medical 
society meetings, especially those held in the middle and far West 
and southwest states should be encouraged and an annual reunion 
of the Alumni Association at the meeting of the A. M. A. should 
be provided for. If needs be, at these gatherings a representative 
of Eush Medical College should be in attendance, one who can speak 
authoritively about Old Eush. This would bring about a stimulus, 
help to increase the attendance at such reunions, bring into closer 
relationship the members of the different classes, encourage that 
fraternal spirit which is so much desired in our profession. Such 
reunions can easily be arranged. As an instance I may cite that 
your President at the last meeting of the Illinois State Medical 
Society at Springfield, three weeks ago, within a day's notice man- 
aged to meet at luncheon thirty-three alumni members. Had the 
work been planned ahead I am quite confident that three times that 
number would have been in attendance. A similar attempt was 
made at the meeting of the A. M. A. at Atlantic City last week, but 
the Eush attendance was too small and the time too limited. I 
would respectfully suggest, therefore, that a committee of one from 
each of the different states representing all the western, southwestern 
and middle west, the Chairman to reside here in this city, be 
appointed to be known as the Alumni Eeunion or Eelations Com- 
mittee, whose duty it shall be to make all necessary arrangements, 
in advance, for the various state reunions as well as for the A. M. A. 
meetings. All arrangements to be made some time in advance of 
these meetings, making it well known by means of the Bulletin or 
otherwise that a reunion of Eush Alumni is to be held at such or 
such a place either in form of a smoker, luncheon or as the com- 
mittee may decide upon; only by such means and methods can we 
hope to bring about a good fellowship and a closer alumni interest. 



RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 25 

2. Historical Alumni. — We are to commemorate this evening 
by words of song and praise the character, activities, life and the 
learning of the founder of Rush Medical College, Dr. Daniel 
Brainard. The historical data of this illustrious man are not very 
abundant. The big Chicago fire in 1871 which destroyed the old 
college building also destroyed all letters, papers, sayings and writ- 
ings of this great teacher. Little has since been gathered about 
Dr. Brainard. Let us guard against a similar contingency. The 
men who followed immediately into the footsteps of Dr. Brainard 
and his coworkers have long ago left this field of labor and joined 
the silent throng. The noted Surgeon, Prof. Moses Gunn, suc- 
ceeded Dr. Daniel Brainard; the collaborators of Dr. Brainard were 
followed by such men as the cultured Dr. James Adam Allen, by the 
Chesterfield, Dr. DeLaskie Miller, the learned Dr. Henry T. Lyman, 
the stern but kind-hearted Dr. Charles T. Parks and Joseph P. Ross, 
and last, but not least, good-natured old Dr. Holmes. A new genera- 
tion of alumni members will soon come on the scene and ask for the 
sayings, the writings, the deeds, the historical data of these grand 
men. Now that the hour is still early, the sun is not yet too far in the 
western horizon — let us gather what we can about their sayings, 
so that we may give into the hands of the coming alumni a knowl- 
edge about these, our teachers and their sayings, which without our 
efforts may be for all time lost. The sayings, anecdotes and jokes 
of Uncle Allen alone if gathered and collected would make a good 
sized volume and would be most interesting reading. (At this 
point I may state that an alumnus had promised me about twenty 
.little anecoclotes about Uncle Allen which he noted down while 
listening to his lectures.) This same applies to many of the other 
old teachers. I would therefore suggest that a committee of five 
be appointed to be known as Alumni Historical Committee whose 
duty it shall be to gather all such information desired and deposit 
the same in the archives of the college or at such place designated 
by the faculty, such sayings and writings to be accessible at all times 
to the members of the Alumni Association, through their officers, 
and that from time to time some of these sayings appear on the 
pages of our official organ, The Bulletin, where it would make 
most interesting, instructive, as well as educational reading matter. 
This brings me to the third point, namely, 

3. The Bulletin. — Relative to The Bulletin, the official organ 
of the Alumni Association, I am of the opinion that it should be 
published solely in the interest of the alumni and its members, to 
contain also such items which relate to Rush Medical College and 
the Chicago University with which Rush is now affiliated. Our 
present editor, Dr. A. C. Soper, has labored faithfully and hard in 
our interest to make The Bulletin a success, but we are asking 
too much for him to do it all, so as President I would offer that the 
scope of The Bulletin be broadened and to that effect I would 



2G HUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

suggest that a committee of five be appointed to be known as 
Alumni Bulletin Committee whose duty it shall be to assist the 
editor in his arduous work, see that all items of interest pertaining 
to the Alumni Association or of its members find place in The 
Bulletin, see that in the near future by broadening of its scope it 
may be issued oftener than four times a year, and that with the 
broadening of its field, the securing of advertisements from repu- 
table pharmaceutical houses, may be deemed proper and profitable, 
so that in the very near future we may be in a position to remu- 
nerate for editing and publishing The Bulletin our members who 
are doing this laborious work. The issuing and editing of a paper 
like our official organ requires much time and attention, more time 
really than the average busy practitioner finds that he can devote 
and we should not ask that this work be done gratuitously. 

In my humble judgment I have made these few but timely 
suggestions and I do hope, as I have acted in the interest of the 
Alumni Association and all of its members, that they deserve your 
earnest consideration. 

In conclusion, I wish to thank you all for the honor that you 
have conferred on me by having made me your President. I esteem 
it a high favor to have merited your confidence and now on retiring 
I wish again to thank you one and all, and all the officers which 
were associated with me, assisting to make this, the 1912 Alumni 
meeting, a success, and that I can assure you that I will ever be 
rtady to be in the field in the interest of the alumni of our Alma 
Mater, old Rush. 



HISTORICAL ACCOUNT OF BRAINARD 

JOHN EITTER, M.D. 

Dr. Daniel Brainard was born May 15, 1812, at Westernville, 
Oneida County^ near Rome, N. Y., and died in Chicago, Oct. 10, 
1866. He graduated from Jefferson Medical College in 1834, began 
the practice of medicine^ at Whitesboro, K. Y., a small village near 
his place of birth, remaining there about one year. He came to 
Chicago in the early part of September, 1835. His first office in 
Chicago was in a little wooden building situated on the ground 
where the Chicago Tribune Building then stood (on south Clark 
street, between Randolph and Lake, opposite the Sherman House, 
old number 53) ; it was there that he gave his first instructions to 
students. In the winter of 1836 he went to St. Louis, where he 
gave a course of lectures on anatomy, returning in the spring of 
1837. He visited Paris in 1837, returning with the fixed purpose 
of opening a medical school, which he did in 1843, naming the 
school in honor of Dr. Benjamin Rush of Philadelphia, one of the 
signers of the Declaration of Independence. He was its first Presi- 



RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 27 

dent and filled the chair of Professor of Anatomy and Surgery, both 
of which he held from the opening of the school until the day of 
liis death in 1866. 

Dr. Brainard Was married at Napervilie, 111., to a daughter of 
Colonel Sleight, founded Eush Medical College in 1843, died at the 
Sherman House on Wednesday evening, Oct. 10, 1866, at 9 :15. Was 
taken sick on the afternoon preceding the day of his death while 
lecturing to the students on the subject of cholera. 

He visited Europe for study and travel again in 1852, and a 
third and last time during the summer of 1866, returning only ten 
days before his death. At the time of his death about 2,700 students 
had received instructions from him. He was 54 years old when he 
died. He saw this city grow from a mere village to a city of over , 
200,000 inhabitants. 

In 1861 he was appointed a member of the State Board of 
Examiners, to test the ability of surgeons who applied on service 
in the Begular Army of the Bebellion. Dr. Brainard first came 
into prominence as a surgeon in 1838, performing a successful 
operation on a canal laborer who had fractured his thighbone and 
which he removed from the joint. Dr. Brainard was considered 
one of the foremost surgeons of that time. He is described as a 
man of decided intellectual power and attainments aside from his 
professional eminence. He had his peculiarities of address and was 
deemed by many unapproachable and reserved, but thousands can 
attest to his genuine kindness of heart and genial feeling, and also 
to his rectitude in his dealings with others. He made no parade of 
his attainments and cared little apparently for forms. He was a 
man of great perseverance and of methodical business habits. Out- 
side of his professional calling he devoted much time and labor to 
the great enterprise of uniting the lakes and the Mississippi Biver 
by a ship canal, and compiled and circulated a large amount of 
statistical information on this subject. 

Dr. Daniel Brainard opened Eush Medical College in the fall 
of 1843. Twenty-two students attending the first course of lectures, 
a Dr. William Butterfield being the first graduate, graduating in 
the early spring of 1844. From the opening of Eush Medical 
College in the fall of 1843 up to the time of Dr. Brainard's death 
in the fall of 1866, in twenty-three years over 2,700 students had 
listened to his lectures and Eush College had graduated 890 men. 
In the fifth annual announcement of Eush Medical College, (1847- 
1848) we learn that Daniel Brainard, M.D., and professor, will 
give an eight weeks' course, beginning in February, 1848, of lectures 
on clinical medicine and surgery and auscultation and percussion. 
Fee $10.00. 



28 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

"THE CHOLEBA" 

"The cholera was then epidemic and at the time very virulent 
'in its results. Great increase in the number of cases. There is 
no disguising the fact that the dread Asiatic scourge is more 
active among us within the past two or three days than previ- 
ously. The average daily number of cases of cholera reported 
during August in this city was about six. For September the 
attacks reported were 272, deaths 146, average of nine attacks daily, 
with five deaths. October showed an alarming increase. It is par- 
ticularly noticeable too that the extension of the disease is not con- 
fined to the unwashed, undrained, illy-ventilated portions of the 
city. It has struck and boldly into the higher walks of life. Chiefly 
confined to the newly arrived emigrant or to that portion of the 
city where bad air and foul drainage are marked features, now, 
however, it has struck higher. The death of Dr. Brainard, Alder- 
man O'Sullivan and Dr. Winer are prominent instances in profes- 
sional circles. The grim monster is thus striking right and left 
among us as if it tired of his previous constraint and were more 
determined to play havoc among us and to avenge on our person 
the terrible neglect which has marked our municipal history in 
regard to sanitary matters and teach us a practical lesson for future 
guidance. 

"It would seem that a partial panic has struck the people in some 
quarters, in one where it would have been least expected. The 
students of Bush Medical College, alarmed by the death of one of 
their number, a Mr. Davidson from Indiana, and the rumored 
death of Dr. Brainard, met at 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon to the 
number of about 200 and voted almost unanimously to adjourn to 
December 1 in view of the danger from cholera, subject, however, 
to a call of the faculty in case the disease abates. One would think 
that they of all men should not fly, as, if they be well enough read 
to practice, their services are wanted here and if not yet skilled, 
they have a good opportunity for study. 

"The course of lectures in the college will be continued so that 
the few students remaining will not suffer by the defection of their 
less staunch brethren. 

"The means for the avoidance of cholera are simple but impera- 
tive. We should by all means secure good ventilation and remove 
from near us every vestige of decaying animal or vegetable matter 
especially in a liquid shape, using disinfectants freely. Personally 
we should avoid chills, keep clean but not wash too often, avoid all 
excesses either in enjoyment or in work. This being secured, the 
cholera will not attack. Should it, however, come through neglect 
of" these precautions, the first symptoms should be attended to. The 
incipient diarrhea is early checked ; if allowed to run for a few hours 
without contraction, fatal results cannot in all cases be avoided. — 
From the Chicago Tribune, Thursday, Oct. 11, 1866.

BANQUET 

The banquet was served promptly at 6 :30. 

Dr. Eitter presided and introduced J. W. Chamberlain, '82, who 
acted as toast master. 

The singing was unusually good, everybody joined in and made 
the dinner very lively; 270 were present. 

J. J. Moore, '12, spoke for the class. 

George H. Weaver, '89, read an address on Brainard's times which 
is published in this issue. 

Dean Albion W. Small followed with "Medicine and the Uni- 
versity," a most admirable and excellent talk. 

Eev. Dean Walter T. Sumner spoke on "Medicine and Matri- 
mony." He advocates a general education as to the condition of 
marriage among the unfit, physically, mentally and morally. The 
end in view is to establish regulations as to who should marry, and 
none should marry unless able to pass a physical examination. 

Then followed the older Alumni who were present, and most of 
them made five-minute talks about Brainard and his time. Some of 
whose speeches we publish : E. T. Spotswood, '51 ; J. W. Edwards, 
'54; T. J. Shreves, '57; L. C. Armstrong, '59; J. L. Thompson, '60; 
C. J. Lewis, '61; John McLean, '63; F. C. Robinson, '63; P. Y.

DE. DANIEL BEAINAED 

C. N. ELLINWOOD, M.D., LL.D.— 1858 

SAN FRANCISCO 

The personal appearance, address and forceful character of Dr. 
Brainard profoundly impressed those who came to know him as a 
man to succeed in whatever he undertook. His personality has been 
more indelibly fixed in my memory during the past sixty years 
than that of any other man I knew in all my student life. 

I can recall his clinics in the old Lake House Hospital on the 
north side of the Chicago Eiver, and some of the cases he presented 
to the class and his own impressive way of doing it. He used few 
words, but they were carefully studied, direct to the point, and his 
points methodically arranged and easily remembered. 
" He was a large man of powerful physique and indomitable will, 
which contributed to his greatness as a surgeon and a teacher. His 
command or direction to a patient brought submission at once with- 
out argument or question, which was a great aid in those days 
before anesthesia was practiced, and it required determined men to 
do surgical operations and brave men to submit to them. 



30 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

Dr. Brainard's manner in the lecture room was affable, easy, 
thoughtful and dignified, which he had trained himself into as best 
comporting to his methods of study and operating. When he had 
solved a problem or conducted a demonstration the student felt 
satisfied that he had it clearly in his mind and finished. 

Malgaigne, the eminent French surgeon- of that day, and profes- 
sor of the Paris School, had this accomplishment also as few men 
have, and Dr. Brainard acquired much of his polish and forceful 
ways in teaching by his frequent association with the professors of 
the Paris faculty. 

The writer of this historical note was a student assistant in the 
service of Professor Brainard in his college clinics, in his office and 
at times in the U. S. Marine Hospital. I assisted in many of his 
vivisections while investigating snake poisons, and the uses of iodin 
as an antidote, and for other purposes. 

Bob Kennicott, another student about my age, who became later 
a. prominent naturalist in the Smithsonian Institution, was very 
expert in catching rattlesnakes on the prairies and housing them in 
the office building where the experiments were conducted. Some- 
times he would have a dozen or more which he handled with great 
dexterity and courage in causing them to bite the animals provided 
for the experiments as Dr. Brainard or I would present them, and 
then followed the noting of results. 

It was this work and his elaborate papers on it and several other 
subjects, e. g., iodin injections in spina bifida, researches and 
procedures in ununited fractures, etc., which he presented to the 
Academy of Medicine in Paris that gained for him distinction for 
original work in that great society, as I learned some years later 
from his friend and fellow member, Baron Larrey. 

The enthusiasm of Dr. Brainard in science and his devotion to 
the college, and his success in gaining a large and lucrative practice 
of surgery, made him the ideal surgeon of our college classes, and 
a large part of the medical profession of the West, and also aroused 
the enmities of some, as is not unusual even nowadays with our 
modern development of the humanities among professional men. 

The appreciation of Dr. Brainard's greatness grows with the 
passing decades of history, not only for his achievements as founder 
of Bush Medical College, his contributions to science and the art 
of surgery, but also for his inspiring influence on young men in 
his following who became his ardent admirers, and so trained them- 
selves as to follow in his footsteps. 

The aspirations of Dr. Brainard and his accomplishments encour- 
aged and stimulated their zeal to be like him. They adopted his 
purposes as their own ambitions in life, and some of them pursued 
his ways and methods. 

As an illustration of this cumulative greatness and beneficence 
in Dr. Brainard's career I make mention of an instance which lias 



RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 31 

come to my personal knowledge. In the year 1855 Dr. Elias Samuel 
Cooper came to San Francisco from Peoria, 111., to realize his 
ambition as a surgeon and to found a medical college. 

It is recorded of Dr. Cooper that he took a prominent part in 
the early proceedings of the Peoria Medical Society; that he was 
the first man to use chloroform as an anesthetic west of Pennsyl- 
vania; that he was a candidate for the place of demonstrator of 
anatomy in Push Medical College when Dr. Joseph Freer was 
elected to that position; that he had pursued his studies in Paris, 
and that he built and conducted the first hospital in Peoria. (These 
interesting circumstances incident to the advent of Dr. Cooper in 
Peoria are mentioned in a paper by Dr. 0. B. Will, published in 
a bulletin of the Society of Medical History of Chicago.) 

The natural ability, studious character and attainments of Dr. 
Cooper enlisted the admiration, guidance and aid of Dr. Brainard, 
through which he joined the tide of emigration then setting in to 
the Pacific Coast, as his great opportunity for an independant 
career as a surgeon and a leader in medical advancement. As a 
direct result history makes record of the fact that in the year 1859 
the Medical College of the Pacific was founded by Dr. Elias Samuel 
Cooper, and that this was the pioneer school for the teaching of 
medicine west of the Eocky Mountains. 

A year later the faculty of this young college received an impor- 
tant accession in the person of Dr. Levi Cooper Lane, a nephew of 
Dr. Cooper, also from Illinois, and a scholarly man, in the favor of 
Dr. Brainard, who had pursued his study of anatomy in Push and 
entered the U. S. Navy, where he served with distinction until he 
resigned to join his uncle in San Francisco as an enthusiastic mem- 
ber of the new faculty, he having imbibed the inspirations of his 
uncle and the ideals of Dr. Brainard, and fortunately he was so 
well equipped, for in 1862 Dr. Cooper died and the perpetuity of 
the school became largely dependent on him. 

The medical profession of the Pacific Coast was at that time com- 
posed in large part of transient adventurers of such diverse interests 
and character that it was difficult to maintain an efficient college 
organization. But by ability and perseverance the school was main- 
tained, and in 1889 Dr. Lane had so succeeded in the practice of 
surgery and the acquirement of a fortune from it that he was able 
to found another college in succession to the one which his uncle 
had established as the Medical College of the Pacific, and in honor 
of his uncle he gave it the name of Cooper Medical College, and he 
endowed it with substantial brick buildings and ample grounds, and 
further endowed it by his arduous labor and loving devotion 
throughout the remaining years of his life. 

It was through my association with Dr. Brainard that I came to 
know of the character and career of Dr. Cooper, and to know per- 



32 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

sonally, and by many years of intimate association, the inspirations 
of Dr. Lane. 

On this occasion we may well regard the correlation in the lives 
of these three great men, Brainard, Cooper and Lane, and the 
world-wide results of their achievements obtained by like ideals 
and similar methods in the interest of medical education for the 
good of mankind. 



Dr. E. T. Spots wood, Class of '51 : Mr. President, Gentlemen of 
the Faculty and of the Board: It would be presumption in me to 
attempt to make any remarks after the able addresses we have had, 
but you may be kind enough to accept a short talk from me. As 
you know I have been here before. About sixty-three years ago I 
made my first visit to Chicago, and the first man that I met and 
became acquainted with was Daniel Brainard. It came about in 
this way: I came from the banks of the Wabash, and there was no 
communication between Chicago and the Wabash: no railroads, 
no stage lines; I was compelled to come on horseback, following 
the trails and camping. When I arrived here I inquired where 
Dr. Brainard lived and was directed to his house, and I went there 
and told my story. I told him I was a medical student, come to 
join his class at Bush Medical College. He did not send me away, 
but he came out and together we went to a livery stable, and I 
remember his talk to a livery man. He said : "Here is a young 
man who wants to enter the college. I want you to sell his horse 
and give him the money; he is innocent of the world outside." I 
am always glad he made a correct diagnosis in my case. My horse 
was sold, and he found me a boarding-place. He took a great 
interest in me, and was a personal friend to me during the whole 
time I was in college. I well recollect his personality and type. 
He was a man among men in every respect. He was a leader and 
a writer. The whole class loved him. He had many theories. He 
had one lecture in regard to wiring bones together, especially "in 
fracture. In one lecture he said he had discovered the wiring of 
bones, and the medical press took no notice of it until it was 
reported back to America from France. Another one of his teach- 
ings which I took advantage of while a surgeon in the Army was 
not to operate too speedily or too rapidly. He related how he had 
gone into the country to see a man who had sustained a compound 
fracture of the thigh-bone. There had been a consultation and 
determination to take off the man's leg. Brainard said : "You must 
not take off the man's leg. There is no necessity to operate." When 
I was in the Army a man sustained just such an injury. The man 
said : "Doctor, they are going to cut off my leg," and I said to this 
man : "You hold onto that, leg." That man got well, and when I 
left him day before yesterday he was still living. In that case I 
had profited by Daniel Brainard's teaching. 



RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 33 

I feel flattered, and every man is a little vain, and I believe I am. 
I want to tell yon something. Yon have been speaking, you have 
been singing, and I have been enjoying it. There is one song that 
is related to Bush Medical College. The song "Annie Laurie" was 
written by Lady Spotswood of Scotland; not the words but the 
music, and that is the good part of it. She found the words and 
wrote the song. She fixed them up and changed them very slightly. 
She was married to a man named Scott, but her father arranged 
it that she would be a Spotswood, and now I want you to turn to 
it and sing it just to please me. 

Dr. T. J. Shreves, Class of '57 : I do not know whether I can 
give my experiences in five minutes or not, and you would naturally 
expect I could say a great deal about Dr. Brainard, and if I do 
I shall tell you about his teachings. We have already had a talk 
about Brainard's treatment and handling of fractures. One of the 
students in our class had a badly deformed arm resulting from the 
faulty treatment of a fracture. Dr. Brainard said to the young 
man: "Young man, don't you want to have that arm fixed?" 
"Yes," said the man, "if you can fix it without breaking it, I 
would be glad to have you do it," The doctor passed a bone drill 
through the bones, and passed it in again, and kept doing that until 
lie made four or five perforations, and in two or three days he did 
it again ; and by that time he had both bones operated so completely 
that he could bend them straight, and now the man has a good arm. 

Down where I live they call me an iodin crank, and now I will 
tell you why. During my experience of fifty years in the profession 
I have treated many cases of rattlesnake bite with it. 1 have never 
been called on to inject the fluid under the skin. I have usually 
used a brush. I want to say to you, rely on iodin for the treat- 
ment of snake-bite, and I believe the same thing will hold true in 
treating rabies. Only once did I know Dr. Brainard to fail when 
lecturing on surgery. He never said a word about appendicitis. 
If I had known of it I should have been a multimillionaire by this 
time. No one spoke of the appendix except Dr. Freer; he did 
describe it and said it was a harmless little thing and no one had 
been able to describe its uses. It has been left to the present-day 
men better to describe its uses. That is to increase the bank account 
of its remover. 

Dr. L. G. Armstrong, Class of '59 : After all the eulogy is paid 
to the name of Brainard I am one to say that I do not believe one- 
half has been said. He was a man you could not describe in 
language. His language was precise, as though written by a master. 
He was always tactful, and this has been mentioned by the last 
speaker. I would also say in regard to the matter of treating rattle- 
snake poison by painting with iodin, that I too believe in it and 
have achieved the same results as he did. I assisted him many times 
in the use of the bone-drill and I know what the last speaker has 



34 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

said is true. I am sorry I cannot tell you of the many things he 
instructed me in. One thing I want to say, I have administered 
chloroform hundreds and thousands of times not only in private 
practice but in the Army, and have always resorted to what 
Dr. Brainard taught as a practical point. "Do not smother the 
patient; give just enough, with plenty of air." I never knew a 
truer gentleman than Dr. Brainard. There are a great many 
women and many men who believe the surgeon is a rough fellow 
and a harsh character. That was not true of Dr. Brainard. He 
never touched a fractured limb or an inflamed part except in a 
gentle manner, and more especially if the patient was a child. His 
was always a gentle touch, and you cannot begin to guess what a 
soothing influence his touch and manner had. 

De. James L. Thompson, Class of '60 : As a student of Bush 
from 1857 to 1860, I can safely say that a more able teacher than 
Dr. Brainard is rarely met with. He had that happy gift of clear- 
ness which so indelibly impresses one's teaching on his students. 

As an operator of the old school he had no superior. His repu- 
tation was international. Dr. Brainard's associate professors were 
Dr. N. S. Davis, who held the chair of theory and practice of 
medicine; you all know his worth; Dr. James Blaney taught chem- 
istry, and he so interested the class while demonstrating the effects 
of light, heat, electricity and chemical affinity that no student slept 
during his lecture (and you must remember that he lectured in 
the afternoon; in those days the students indulged in a mid-day 
dinner, after which if a prosy, prolix speaker were to lecture, half 
the class would be nodding). 

Dr. Freer was an excellent anatomist and surgeon and a very 
forceful teacher. Dr. Byford taught obstetrics and diseases of 
women; he was a delightful gentleman, very much loved by the 
class. Dr. Johnson's chair was physiology. He was a very devout 
man. Dr. Bauch's chair was materia medica. He was the youngest 
teacher in the class, was handsome and always dressed in the height 
of fashion. 

In 1859 a new medical school was started under the name of the 
Medical Department of the Lind University. It took from Bush 
Drs. N. S. Davis, Byford and Johnson. In the fall of 1859 nearly 
all of the former class reentered Bush. 

Dr. J. Adams Allen occupied the chair formerly -held by Dr. 
Davis. He was an excellent teacher, a profound scholar and 
interested us with his pleasant humor. Dr. De Laskie Miller's chair 
was the one vacated by Dr. Byford. He was a very modest gentle- 
man and a good teacher. Dr. Ephraim Ingals took the chair of 
materia medica, which he taught in a very practical way and did 
not reacl'his lectures, as did many of the teachers of that subject in 
the colleges of those days. Dr. Hudson held the position which 
was formerly occupied by Dr. Johnson. He had written a prize 



RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 35 

essay on opium winch had been highly praised by the profession 
of the country. The faculty of Eush was composed of very excel- 
lent teachers, honorable men of the old school. 

What a change has taken place since those days ! Such advance- 
ment has been made in surgery since bacteriology has been studied 
and asepsis enforced that operations inside the cranium, thorax and 
abdomen are no longer feared; nor do we dread the epidemics of 
yellow fever, pernicious malarial fever and diphtheria as heretofore. 
Much good work is being done by the better class of colleges by 
accepting those only who have had a satisfactory preliminary educa- 
tion. The lengthening of the term and adding thereto from two 
to three years has done much good. But, unfortunately, no sooner 
was this done than a spirit of graft and commercialism came on 
us, when a Gorgon's head appeared, in the dishonest and degrading 
practice of fee-splitting. Fancy for one moment the dignified Dr. 
N. S. Davis appealing to the equally proud surgeon Brainard that 
the latter give him a per cent, of his fee for sending patients 
to him ! If we cannot succeed in inducing our fellow practitioners 
to abandon this suicidal practice, the name of doctor will become 
(in the language of Horace Greely when speaking of New York 
aldermen) synonymous with thief. How applicable are the words 
of the seer of Patmos in his letter to the seven churches : 

"Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write : these things 
saitli he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh 
in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks : I know thy works and 
the labor, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them who 
are evil; and thou canst not bear them who say they are apostles 
and are not, and have found them liars, and have borne and had 
patience and for my name's sake hast labored and hast not 
fainted. Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou 
hast left thy first love. Eemember therefore from whence thou 
hast fallen, and repent and do the first works; or else I will come 
unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, 
except thou repent." 

P. C. Eobinson, Class of '63 : It has been almost fifty-two years 
since I matriculated as a student in Eush Medical College. I was 
then a young man with an air-castled ambition to succeed in the 
profession I had chosen for my life's work, and I knew of no better 
school than old Eush, with Daniel Brainard at its head. I am 
glad I came here. Dr. Brainard was physically a large man, of 
iron constitution, tall and stately, and his manner had the soul of 
dignity. He was a gentleman of culture and learning. As a 
teacher he stood without a rival in the class-room, and the climes 
were always well attended. His article on ununited fractures was 
copied and scattered through the medical journals of the country. 
When I first met Dr. Brainard at the preliminary course of lectures 
in October, 1861, he seemed to me cold, reserved and unapproach- 



36 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

able. When I knew him better I found beneath the rough exterior 
of his nature a warm heart overflowing with kindness, generosity 
arid sympathy. 

In the early sixties the hypodermic injection of morphin was 
first used to relieve pain. Dr. Brainard had a syringe made by 
Tieman & Co. of New York, and it was the first one used in the 
West. It soon came into general use by physicians and students 
everywhere. 

I never saw Dr. Brainard use a thermometer in his clinics or 
in the hospital wards, and in his lectures he never referred to the 
temperature in the diagnosis and treatment of disease. In the 
month of January, 1866, E. C. Seguin, M.D., reported three cases 
of pneumonia, treated in the New York Hospital, where the temper- 
ature was the guide for diagnosis and treatment. Dr. Brainard 
died before the thermometer came into general use in this country, 
and germs as the cause of disease were undiscovered. Antiseptic 
surgery was not taught in Bush Medical College fifty years ago, 
and training-schools for nurses had not been organized. In 1863 
there were only 323 physicians and surgeons in the city of Chicago, 
Dr. Brainard ranking high among the best operators in America, 
if not in the world. 

The college was located on the north side of the river, at the 
corner of Indiana and Dearborn Streets, and clinics were held three 
times each week. The fire of 1871 swept away the building, library 
and museum of rare curiosities. The founder of such an institu- 
tion was no ordinary man. He was beloved by his students, and 
revered by the whole faculty. He was an industrious, busy man, 
accumulating a large property. The faculty in 1861, 1862 and 1863 
consisted of seven professors, who were as able and intelligent a lot 
of men as ever graced the rostrum of any medical college in Chicago. 
They are all dead, and so are nearly all of the seventy-eight gradu- 
ates of the Class of 1863. In reviewing the early days of my college 
life I recall the stern dignity of Professor Brainard ; the happy and 
social countenance of Professor Allen ; the neat and tidy appearance 
of Professor De Laskie Miller ; the quiet and slow-spoken Professor 
Freer; the sunbeam chemist, Prof. J. V. Z. Blaney; the kindly, 
pleasant face of Professor Ingals; the tall and stately figure of 
Prof. Robert L. Rea, who knew anatomy to the minutest points, 
surfaces and angles, and whose words of description almost made 
our heads dizzy as they glided from his silvery tongue. Professor 
Brainard presented the Class of '63 with their diplomas, and Pro- 
fessor Rea gave the valedictory address. I had almost forgotten 
Dr. Edwin Powell, the demonstrator of anatomy. He was a nephew 
of Dr. Brainard, and after the War of the Rebellion returned to 
Chicago, and was elected president of the college faculty. Last 
winter I saw a notice of his death in one of the Chicago papers. 



RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 37 

I have passed my seventy-fifth milestone of life, and am still in 
active practice in Wyanet, Bureau County, Ind., where I have been 
located for almost fifty years. I return my kind regards to my class- 
mates of ? 63, and trust that your lives, like mine, have not been 
failures. 

Dr. Peter S. Macdonald, Class of '64: In the zenith of Pro- 
fessor Brainard's prosperity he responded to every call — rich or 
poor. I wish to take this opportunity of refuting a slander that 
I have heard on several occasions since his death — that lie was not 
charitable to the poor. Such, ladies and gentlemen, was not the 
,ease; it is as false as hades — a base fabrication! Being in his 
office for a period of nearly two years, I had ample opportunities 
of knowing. 

Whatever may have been his faults, he certainly was generous and 
kind to the destitute. On several occasions, when it was reported 
to him that some of the surgical cases of the dispensary were not 
progressing as favorably as we would like, at his own suggestion^ he 
requested me to accompany him to their homes. Not to the man- 
sions of wealth and luxury, but to the home of the indigent, many 
of them in a semidestitute condition. Among the latter class, from 
my own personal knowledge, it could be truly said of them that 
None knew him but to love him; 
None named him but to praise. 

Methinks I hear some of you gentleman remark: Where were 
your hospitals? In reply to that interrogation, they were few in 
number. Professor Brainard's private hospital, exclusively for sur- 
gery, was situated on Push Street; Cook County Hospital was 
situated on Eighteenth and Arnold, only organized in 1866, and 
that, late in the season, by the untiring and zealous efforts of the 
lamented Drs. Ross and Amerman, purposely, "for the care of the 
indigent poor, and also for giving medical students the advantages 
of clinical instructions." Mercy Hospital was organized in 1851, 
where it is now located. The Marine Hospital was then located 
corner of Michigan Avenue and Water Street. 

Prof. Daniel Brainard at one time was surgeon-in-chief of both 
the Mercy and Marine hospitals. 

As a teacher and lecturer, he was the peer of any ; in fact, he was 
without a rival; as an able medical writer has stated, "the order, 
the method and clearness of his lectures, have never teen surpassed.'' 

He had a wonderful command of the English language; in a 
word, he was an orator. Physicians visiting the city would fre- 
quently call at his office and inquire what were his hours for 
lecturing and giving clinics. In fact, among the medical profes- 
sion he was better known abroad and in other states than in his 
home city — Chicago. 

I will add here an anecdote which will briefly illustrate two 
predominating characteristics of Professor Brainard — decision 



38 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

and firmness : In the Class of 1864 there were two rejections. The 
wife and several relatives of one of the young men not allowed to 
pass had come to the city to be present at the commencement exer- 
cises. They made several efforts to persuade the faculty to grant 
the disappointed student a second examination, and visited Dr, 
Brainard an two occasions, but found him inexorable. My good 
offices were sought to the effect that I promised to do what I could 
when an opportunity presented itself. Shortly after the final 
examinations I was returning with Dr. Brainard from a visit to 
his private hospital ; the doctor was driving slowly, and it occurred 
to me that the time was propitious for the making of my plea for 
my classmate. I had no sooner made it than I realized my mistake 
— or rather the uselessness of my effort, and was taught a lesson 
I never have forgotten. His reply to my plea was: "Young man, 
people in this world get rich by attending to their own business. 
It is enough for you to know that you have passed." 

I thank you for permitting me to have the honor of a share 
in paying tribute to the memory of one so deserving a high place 
in the regard of the members of the medical profession and particu- 
larly of those who claim Eush Medical College as their Alma Mater. 

Brief talks were also made by S. B. McGlumphy, '64; Charles J. 
Lewis. '65; William L. Eabe, '66; J. Massman, '6*7; T. C. Murphy, 
'68. Unfortunately the absence of a stenographic report makes it

ILLINOIS RUSH ALUMNI MEETING 

The luncheon of Bush alumni during the meeting of the State 
Association at the new Lei and Hotel in Springfield, 111., May 22. 
was a grand affair. 

There had been no arrangement made previous to the meeting 
and. a contemplated gathering was announced only the day before, 
still thirty-three alumni members responded and all had a good 
time. Eighteen school years were represented, three each for the 
years 1884, 1899 and 1900 ! The year 1871 was the earliest year 
represented, by Dr. S. T. Hurst, Greenview, and Dr. I. H. Taylor, 
Springfield, and the last year was represented by Dr. H. S. Metealf, 
'04, Springfield, 

After luncheon Dr. John Bitter, '80, president of the Alumni 
Association for the current year, acting as chairman, opened the 
discussion with the following remarks : 



RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 41 

''Fellow Alumni: When I left Chicago for Springfield to attend 
the state meeting. Dean Dodson asked me to do what I could to 
bring about a reunion of old 'Eush' at this meeting, with what 
result, considering the limited time, it is for you to judge. The 
chief purpose of this gathering is to extend to all of you a most 
earnest invitation to attend the annual meeting of the Alumni Asso- 
ciation in June next. The faculty with the alumni members intend 
to make this meeting a distinct Brainard gathering. One hundred 
years ago on May 12 last, the founder of Eush Medical College, 
Dr. Daniel Brainard. was born, and we deem it a most opportune 
time to honor the name of this illustrious man. 

'"Your alma mater sends greetings to you and extends to you all 
a most cordial invitation, and many of your former classmates and 
associates, to talk over the Iong-gone-by days when we were boys, 
bearing in mind that we are still boys only full-grown. Next we 
ought to arrange ahead for our annual gathering; our membership 
is large ; I would like to impress on our newly elected president of 
the Illinois State Society, Dr. Whalen, '91, who is an alumnus, to 
see to it early in the day that we have a large and enthusiastic 
meeting at the state meeting at Peoria next year." 

"Dr. Whalen, "91. who in the morning was elected president of 
the State Medical Society for the ensuing year, made a few very 
appropriate remarks on this gathering, promising that he as presi- 
dent would do all in his power to make the next alumni meeting at 
the Illinois State Society meeting in 1913 a grand success. 

Dr. Pettit. '81. Ottawa, in a humorous vein made reference to the 
newly elected president, how it feels to be a president, that now 
that he is out of politics he would tell us how to do the trick. 

Dr. Mover, '79, spoke about the old faculty, and of the days long

Dr. Hurst, '71, spoke about the old days when he and Prof. 
E. F. Ingals were classmates. In those days he looked on Dr. Ingals 
as the ideal student, and to this day he is proud to know that he 
was his classmate. 

Dr. McClennan. '78, gave quite a reminiscence of the old days 
of Eush College before the west side building was opened, wdien 
instructions were given by the old faculty under the sidewalk. 

After impromptu remarks from quite a few present, the gather- 
ing broke up witli a feeling of good fellowship, and with a sincere 
hope that all may be spared to meet again at the meeting of the 
Illinois State Medical Society at Peoria in 1913.

KECEPTION BY THE COLLEGE OF THE TABLET OF 

THE CLASS OF 1912 
ADDRESS OF PROF. JAMES B. HERRICK 

Class Day Exercises, June, 1912 

In behalf of the faculty of Bush Medical College, I accept your 
tablet, thank you for the same and promise that it shall be safely 
kept. 

Your motto "Sympathy and Help" readily suggests a topic for 
my address, and I had planned to speak along the lines of the 
physician as a man, sympathetic, feeling for, and suffering with, 
his patient, and the physician as an expert, trained in medical 
science and practicing his art in such a way as to help banish sick- 
ness and suffering. But at the last hour a press of duties of various 
kinds made it impossible for me to prepare such an address, so I 
bethought me of remarks I had made on a similar occasion to 
another class, and murmuring to myself "Semper Paratus," the 
motto of my class, '88, whose tablet is seen somewhere among these 
grave-yard-like monuments of defunct groups of students, I reached 
down into my barrel of addresses and found this address, which I 
present to you to-da}^ and which was delivered to the class of 1903 
on a similar occasion. 

I should be false to tradition if, with this opportunity and with 
the consciousness of even a moderate seniority in years and experi- 
ence, I did not try to give the recent graduate a bit of advice. So 
I shall, after the manner of the preacher, say that my text is the 
holiest physician. The physician should be honest and truthful in 
word and deed. This, you say, admits of no argument, no dis- 
cussion; it is self-evident. So it is if one means that the physician 
should not filch your watch, should not tell you that your leg is 
broken when it is not, or claim to have operated on you for an 
appendicitis when he had made only a trivial wound in the skin 
for the dishonest purpose of robbing you of a fee for an operation 
he has not performed. Such dishonesty needs no condemnation, 
and should I dwell on it you could rightly feel indignant or insulted 
because I had ventured to broach the subject. The dishonesty I 
wish to condemn is more subtle than this. It is not always classed 
as dishonesty. 

The physician occupies a somewhat unique position. He has 
intimate relations with the public, his professional brethren and 
his patients. How shall he be the embodiment of truth in each 
one of these relations? 

I dismiss the first topic briefly, though it admits of wide elabo- 
ration. On questions of public health, quarantine, school and 
home hygiene, endorsement of plans of treatment, health resorts, 



4 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

patent medicines; on matters of medical education, hospital man- 
agement; on the ethics and propriety of newspaper interviews and 
advertising, etc., the physician can by word and deed display a 
fearless honesty, always standing for the truth, not governed by 
the desire to gain the present popular ear or to win in the eyes of 
some influential man in the community, or prospective patient. In 
this way he is a faithful citizen, and serves the public well in 
enlightening them on these subjects, concerning not a few of which 
they are ignorant, yet earnestly desiring knowledge. Truthful act 
and word in these matters will do much to elevate the profession of 
medicine in public esteem. Time-serving methods, self-aggrandiz- 
ing methods, create a distrust of physicians. 

If we could but follow out in the practice of our profession the 
golden rule of treating our brother physician as we would ourselves 
be treated, there would be no need of uttering a word concerning 
honesty in our relations to our fellow practitioners. But how often 
do we see the golden rule perverted, and practiced according to 
David Harum's modification of doing unto the other man what you 
think he will do to you, "but do it first" ; get the start of him. In 
the smaller town, particularly, there is too often not a friendly, 
inspiring rivalry, but a bitter, jealous opposition, not open, manly 
criticism, but backbiting and slander. This often originates in a 
misunderstanding or in a spirit of mutual distrust. Some hint, 
some shrug of the shoulder, some criticism that is a little enven- 
omed of the other doctor's treatment of a case, starts on its round 
of village gossip, is ever magnified like Virgil's "Fama," until by 
the time is reaches his ears he believes you have grossly misrepre- 
sented him and maligned him. Eemember, suspicion begets sus- 
picion; trust begets trust. Why not start in on the theory that 
the other man is as honest as you, that you will treat him fairly 
not only so long as he accords you that treatment, but long after 
he has ceased treating you as he should. You will be willing to 
meet him more than half way in the matter of gentlemanly con- 
duct. One good derived from medical societies is that they show 
doctors who there meet each other that they are all human, all 
inspired by much the same motives, and that the other fellow is not 
half so bad. as he is painted. You will not see the force of what I 
say until you get out into practice and see how easy it is and how 
common it is for village practitioners to be at loggerheads, instead 
of being friendly competitors, cooperating for the good of the sick, 
the advancement of science, and their own mutual interests. Frank- 
ness, openness, honesty bring this about. Better open enmity than 
hidden treachery. If a man is a rascal shun him, or oppose him. 
Aut pax aut helium. The doctor who comes in and throws your 
medicine out of the window and calls you a horse doctor leaves no 
doubt as to where he stands. You know where to find him every 
time. He is always against you. But beware the smiling villain, 



RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 5 

and be not such a one. He is' Revenge; "the smiler with the knife 
hid under the cloak." 

Patients have a right to demand honest treatment. They have 
a right to expect the truth from the physician, but they do not 
always get it. For an out-and-out misrepresentation, the object of 
which is personal gain, as when I treat for tuberculosis a case I 
know is not tuberculosis, there can be only one opinion. Such a 
deed is a falsehood, the perpetrator of it a fraud, morally and 
legally a criminal. But shall we practice misrepresentation for the 
supposed good of our patient, or because in self-defense we are 
obliged to pretend to possess a knowledge as to diagnosis that we 
have not, or in therapy to give drugs to satisfy the demands of a 
patient? To do a great good shall we do a little wrong? 

This really is, to my mind, a difficult question to answer. Theo- 
retically, and I believe in general practically, there should be no 
deception. We should lay no claim to omniscience. We must 
frankly admit our human fallibility and the shortcomings of medi- 
cine as a science. If this were to be done openly it would be far 
better not only for the individual physician, but a great gain for 
medicine as a whole. The too frequent assumption of knowledge 
that is not possessed, the posing before the patient as one thor- 
oughly understanding the case, the acting of a part, finally results 
in there being ingrained into the character of the physician some- 
thing of the hypocrite ; he gives his drugs when they are not needed 
and begins to have a half way kind of belief in their efficacy; he 
goes about fooling the people. The detection by the people of this 
false character — and the public sooner or later "catches on" — leads 
to a reaction, a distrust of doctors and medicine, and a taking up 
with Christian Science, Dowieism, etc. And who can blame the 
public? They say, "whom can we trust?" It is the fear of being 
called ignorant that impels the young physician to try to look and 
act wiser than he is. He feels forced to make an early diagnosis, 
a diagnosis on the spot. The older man, if he have the confidence 
of his family, can say "I do not know," can wait and still retain 
the case. This is the excuse often offered when the young man finds 
himself forced to claim knowledge- that he does not possess. But 
often immediately, as when the case turns out to be different from 
what he has said it was, later when the people see the insincerity of 
this physician, it is found that even this kind of dishonesty is not 
only morally indefensible, but it is not the best policy, and does not 

pay. 

Is it difficult to do the right thing? Yes, often very difficult. 
Take a concrete case such as one I showed in clinic a year or two 
ago. Largely by exclusion I reached a probable diagnosis of mild, 
somewhat atypical typhoid, yet even after a week's observation, felt 
that I must reserve the right to change my opinion. A practitioner 
in the audience asked what I would say in private practice with a 



G RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

similar case. I can only say that there is only one course to pursue 
in a case like that — to explain frankly to the friends of the patient 
the nature of the case as you understand it, its mild nature, the 
necessity for little medication. It is the right way, the best way. 

I wish to read you a few words from Eichard Cabot's article on 
"Truth and Falsehood in Medicine." If you read this I fear you 
will think I have plagiarized for some of the ideas that I am now 
presenting to you, while often thought by me before Cabot wrote, 
had not been so clearly stated, and I appear to have borrowed, arid 
at times have borrowed, his thought or expression. This extract 
shows how it is possible for a young man to practice medicine 
honestly and still to succeed. Nay, it shows more, it shows how 
his honesty is one of his main stocks in trade. Be assured that the 
public as a whole is shrewd of judgment and reads character well 
when it comes into immediate contact with a man, as in the rela- 
tion of family physician and patient. Sooner or later people make 
a fairly correct estimate of a man's motive, if not of his professional 
ability. 

"The first experience that made me doubt whether it is necessary 
for a young practitioner to pretend omniscience in order to retain 
his patient's confidence was the following : I had the opportunity 
of driving about a large town some* twenty-five miles from Boston, 
with a young physician only a year or two my senior. He took me 
on his regular rounds, and we saw farmers and the grocer's wife, 
the hotel-keeper's daughter and the blacksmith's baby, as well as 
one or two well-to-do people. The great majority of the cases were 
in families of very limited education, the kind of folks that we 
think of as subsisting mostly on pies and patent medicine. But 
what made each case an eye-opener to me was the utter frankness 
of the doctor with the families. Diagnosis, prognosis, and treat- 
ment were given with an absence of subterfuge and of prevarication 
that astounded me, and what even more surprised me was to see 
the way the patients liked his frankness. I never have seen mani- 
fested more implicit confidence in a physician than during that 
drive. He never forced his doubt or his suspicions on his patients, 
but when they asked a straight question they got a straight answer. 
A baby had a fever. 'What's the baby got?' asked its mother. 
c Can't tell yet,' said the doctor; 'may be going to break out with 
something to-morrow or it may be all right in a clay or two. We 
shall have to wait and see.' There was no talk of 'febricula' or 
'gastric fever.' Not once did I hear him say that a patient was 
'threatened' with any disease. He knew that Nature makes no 
threats, and that no honest doctor ever foists his ignorance on 
Nature by charging her with making a threat. 

"I asked him the obvious question : 'How can you be so frank 
with your patients and yet keep their confidence?' 



EUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 7 

a 'Because they know/ said lie, 'that whenever anything unusual 
comes up that I can't handle or that puzzles me I have a consultant. 
So when I say that I don't know and yet don't get in a consultant, 
they understand that nothing of any seriousness is the matter, and 
that they don't need to worry.' " 

But what about telling a patient the exact nature of his dis- 
ease. "Yes sir, you have a cancer, you have Bright's disease or tuber- 
culosis;" or to another, "you have nothing the matter, your fears 
are groundless, you are a neurasthenic, or an hysterical individual." 
The more I practice the more does it seem to me right to speak the 
truth fearlessly, at least to the friends. I confess I balk often at 
telling a man that he has a cancer or is incurably ill of tuberculosis. 
It may be bad treatment to tell the naked truth, though I do that- 
far oftener than formerly and have found the results better than I 
had anticipated, greater peace of mind, less constant worry and 
anxiety on the part of the patient. A few years ago I was one of a 
council of some five or six where a patient had gall-stones, and 
needed immediate operation. The surgeon who was deputed to tell 
her of the necessity of operation, fearing the depressing effect of a 
diagnosis of gallstones on her because of a recent fatal case in one 
of her friends, told the patient her trouble was appendicitis need- 
ing operation. She will know, if she does not already, all the 
friends knew at the time, that deception was practiced. Now who 
can blame the numerous friends familiar with this case when they 
themselves fall sick and these same counsellors gather around and 
announce their decision, if they look the doctors in the face and 
say, " doctors, I don't believe a word you say. You deceived Mrs. 
X, you are not telling me the truth." Even though these decep- 
tions are supposedly for the good of the patient, though our motives 
are entirely unselfish we should hew as close to the lines of truth 
as possible without injury to the patient, and make these white lies 
rarer and rarer. 

I would plead briefly, though it permits of a wide elaboration, 
for a sincerity in therapy. We may use the bread pill or placebo, 
or employ drugs for their suggestive effect. One may not be above 
this device, for mental therapy has to be recognized. But let us 
educate ourselves and our people to a belief in the natural course of 
many diseases toward recovery. Admit frankly the uselessness, the 
senselessness, of treating every little symptom, though the treat- 
ment may be harmless. We may, if we begin right in this way, 
have the pleasure of being called to see our patient and will be told, 
"Doctor, if the baby needs nothing please do not give anything, for 
we are just as well satisfied, yes, better satisfied without medicine 
than with it." This is, in this age, at least, a high tribute to a 
physician's honesty, a proof that the family knows that in times 
past, deception has not been practiced. 



8 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

These thoughts that I have presented to you are merely in the 
way of hints. If they infuse into you or serve to fix more firmly 
than ever before the determination that in your practice of medi- 
cine, in your relation to the public, your colleagues and your 
patients, you will stick closely to the truth, I shall feel that these 
minutes have not been misspent. 



MINUTES OF THE ANNUAL BUSINESS MEETING, 1912 

The annual business meeting of the Alumni Association of Rush 
Medical College was called to order June 12, 1912, at the Audi- 
torium Hotel, Chicago, Dr. John Ritter, '80, President, in the chair. 

The minutes of the last annual meeting having been published in 
The Bulletin" for July, 1911, their reading was dispensed with. 
The Secretary's rejoort was verbal, and dealt largely with the diffi- 
culties of getting news items for The Bulletin. 

The Treasurer's report was read, and an auditing committee, 
consisting of Drs. Corwin, Plecker and Linnell, was appointed by 
the President. The report, as approved, follows. 

The Necrologist's Report for the past year, prepared by Dr. 
Charles A. Parker, '91, was read and accepted. 

The motion was made by Dodson, seconded by Walker, and car- 
ried, that the election of officers be made from the floor, and the 
following were nominated and elected: 

President, Henry B. Eavill, '83, Chicago. 

First Vice-President, Frank Beasley, '64, Lafayette, Ind. 

Second Vice-President, Henry B. Sears, '82, Beaver Dam, Wis. 

Third Vice-President, Hubert A. Robinson, '89, Kenosha, Wis. 

Necrologist, Charles A. Parker, '91, Chicago. 

Treasurer, H. H. Kleinpell, '00, Chicago. 

Secretary, William T. Swift, '04, 32 N. State Street, Chicago. 

The report of the Fellowship Committee was made by Dr. 
Weaver, who said that in his opinion the work of the committee 
was duplicated by that of other committees, and that the work of 
the chairman entailed a personal expense for stamps and stationery 
of over $100. He suggested that the soliciting of funds for the 
Fellowship be made the duty of the Treasurer of the Association, 
and the expense be paid out of its funds. A motion was passed 
that the committee be continued, but that the collection of funds 
be left to the Treasurer.

On reading a letter from Dr. Charles Hill, '57, of Minnesota, 
telling of the recent deaths of his wife and his son, and his conse- 
quent inability to be present at the reunion, it was moved and sec- 
onded that the Secretary be instructed to draft a letter of con- 
dolence to Dr. Hill and send it to him. 

secretary's report 

The work of the Secretary in the past year has been largely con- 
fined to the compiling of news for The Bulletin". This has been 
no easier task than in former years, for the Alumni seem in general 
reluctant to see their names in print, and the changes in college 
and hospital affairs are not frequent. During the year considerable 
interest and correspondence was awakened in the arrangements for 
the Brainard Memorial Day at commencement, and a large number 
of responses was received from alumni who were interested in the 
subject. Over thirty alumni are alive who were in college during 
the time of Professor Brainard, and all these men wrote enthusi- 
astic letters or promised to attend the reunion. 

The minutes of the annual meeting of June, 1911, were pub- 
lished in the next succeeding issue of The Bulletin - , and do not 
need repetition. The total paid membership of the Alumni Asso- 
ciation is now 770. 

The Secretary retires from office with thanks to the many mem- 
bers who have given him assistance in preparing the various items 
of news for The Bulletin, and with best wishes for his successor.

NECROLOGIST'S REPORT 
Rush Medical College Alumni Association, Year Ending June 1, 1912 

Fellow Alumni: — I will present to the Secretary of our Association a 
record of the deaths that have occurred among our members since our last 
meeting a year ago this month, with such data, as it seems to me, we as 
an association may best preserve in our files. 

In many cases this may appear very meager to friends of the departed 
members when no disparagement is intended as this is an attempt to record 
but the closing of the career, the final change of address, as it were, with 
occasional brief references to endeavors put forth and honors achieved dur- 
ing the active years of their residence here. Their good deeds are known 
in the places where they lived and worked, where they were respected and 
loved and where now they are mourned by those whose burdens they had 
so faithfully shared or manfully lifted. To attempt even a partial recital 



12 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

of them is but to fail grievously, so we will leave them to the loving hearts 
that know them, and here confine ourselves to the more formal, though 
none the less respectful course. 

The number of deaths recorded for the past year is 68 as against 82 for 
the year previous. The class of 1870 contributed 5 of these; the class of 
1869, 4; the classes of 1875, 1881, 1891 and 1899, 3 each; and the class of 
1911, 1, Dr. Brennecke, who was drowned less than a month after his 
graduation. 

Grouped by decades, there were 3 over 80, the oldest being 87, Dr. Asa 
Clark, class of 1848; 7 over 70; 21 over 60; 16 over 50; 12 over 40; 5 over 
30; and the youngest was 27, Dr. Brennecke, who was drowned the 4th of 
July after his graduation. In another grouping, 10 were over 70, and 
31, or nearly one-half were over 60. The average of all ages was 57% 
years. Among the causes of death when stated — 52 times — cerebral hemor- 
rhage with its 9 victims stands first. Two of these were aged but 42 
years, 2 others 51 and 55, respectively, and the remaining 5 were over 60. 
After cerebral hemorrhage comes heart disease with 7 to its credit and 
pneumonia and nephritis also with 7 each. 

Last year pneumonia stood first with 10 victims and cerebral hemorrhage 
second, with 9. Five members could not wait for either of these condi- 
tions to overtake them, but went by violence inflicted by their own hands; 
3, gunshot, 1 cut-throat, and 1 chloroform. Senile debility this year 
claimed but 2. Dr. Minahan, of the class of 1891, was one of the Titanic's 
heroes. Appendicitis and intestinal obstruction claimed 3. One died from 
an automobile injury and 1 from drowning. 

Fifth in order of .frequency, either as a direct or predisposing cause of 
death appears to be the name Smith, as 6 of the deceased members, or 
over one-twelfth of the total number, bore that name.- My prediction last 
year that aeroplanes in the future will figure in the mortality statistics of 
our profession has fortunately not yet been fulfilled as even our humblest 
member is not yet willing to admit ever being so far "up in the air." 

Again I thank you for your confidence and indulgence.

REMINISCENCES OF OUR COLLEGE DAYS FORTY 
YEARS AGO * 

F. C. Robinson, j 63 

Mr. President and Members of the Alumni Association of Rush 
Medical College. 

Some time ago I received a letter from your secretary, Dr. 
Rhodes, inviting me to attend this Alumni or reunion of the grad- 
uates of Rush Medical College. Although I was not a member of 
this Association, I accepted the invitation, and my name is on the 
program for a talk on "Reminiscences of our College Days Forty 
Years Ago." As I belong to the class they call a "country doctor," 
unaccustomed to public speaking, I wonder why Dr. Rhodes should 
ask me to talk of the times of long ago when there are so many 
here who could perform that duty in a more instructive and pleas- 
ing manner than I am able to do. If he has made a mistake in his 
selection I will try to make amends for it by. the brevity of my 
paper. 

I have been engaged in the practice of medicine in the city of 
Wyanet, Bureau County, Illinois, for more than thirty-nine years, 
and during all these years I have always retained a high regard 
and love for my alma mater and the corps of professors who made 
Rush Medical College the best medical institution in the vast north- 
west. 

In 1862, forty years ago, I was a student of Rush. I was a young 
man then, and with others looking forward to the time when I 
should graduate and be prepared to take my place in the ranks of 
the medical profession. To-night, through the mystic veil of so 
many eventful years, I will try and recall some of my classmates, 
professors and teachers with whom we were then so closely and 
intimately identified. 

Amidst the cares and duties of a doctor's busy life shadows of 
forgetfulness may cross their memories, their associates and class- 
mates may be forgotten, but we never forget the professors and 
teachers who taught us or lectured in the college amphitheater, at 
the clinics or in the wards of the hosjDitals. I was a member of 
the class of J 63. So far as I have been able to learn, twelve of this 
class are now practicing medicine and surgery in Illinois, some are 
dead and others scattered I know not where. I will refer to some 
of them later. 



* Read at commencement, 1902, but particularly appropriate at this time in 
mnection with the Brainard celebration. 



20 KUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

To make these reminiscences more complete I will say a few 
words in the memory of each of the faculty of Eush in 1861-1862- 
1863, when I was a strident there. The faculty consisted of Drs. 
Daniel Brainard, J. Adams Allen, Joseph W. Freer, Ephraim 
Ingals, J. Vincent Blainey, E. L. Eea, Delaskie Miller and Edwin 
Powell, Demonstrator of Anatomy. Six of the above-named have 
finished their lecture course in life's ampi theater and gone to their 
rewards in the unknown future. One yet remains. He is now an 
old man retired from active life waiting for his final change. 

The most important member of the faculty was Dr. Brainard. 
He was the Professor of Operative Surgery and President of the 
College Faculty. Dr. Knowles has told you about him, and he has 
done it so well it is unnecessary for me to take up your time by 
repetition. We canuot say too much of such a man, and those of us 
who knew him can but revere and cherish his memory. He was a 
man of fine physique, large head, high forehead, commanding in 
person, tail and stately, and his manner had the soul of dignity. 
He was a forcible speaker and always aroused an interest in his 
classes beyond any other member of the faculty. His lectures 
showed him to be a man of deep thought, wide information on all 
subjects of a scientific character, as well as to the science of opera- 
tive surgery. When he was in the class-room or performing a sur- 
gical operation in the college or hospital we realized we were in the 
presence of a great man, a surgical genius who knew just what 
ought to be done, and with the courage and ability to do it. He 
died of cholera, Oct. 10, 1866. 

Dr. Allen occupied the chair of Theory and Practice of Medicine. 
He was a fluent and ready speaker, in fact a natural orator. He 
was witt} r , humorous and a fine story teller. His jolly pleasant 
manner and fine social qualities made him a favorite among the 
boys. His lectures were more theoretical than practical, and when 
compared with the present knowledge of the causes and treatment 
of diseases, crude indeed. He introduced into his lectures many 
pleasing stories or anecdotes which made them interesting and 
amusing. One of these stories I have never forgotten. I will tell it 
as best I can, but not as Allen could. 

The time of this story was when diphtheria began to attract the 
attention of physicians as a special disease. In epidemics of this 
disease the mortality among children was alarming, and physicians 
were unable to treat it very successfully. A young man working 
in the pineries of Wisconsin had in some way learned of a medicine 
in powder form which, if blown into the throats of children suffer- 
ing with this terrible disease, would relieve or cure. As a powder 
insufflator he used a quill, and it soon became known that if it was 
used early in the disease the recoveries were more frequent than 
when they relied on the doctor's medicines. In an epidemic of this 
disease he gained such notoriety that he was frequently sent for to 



EUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 21 

use the quill. His success gave him confidence in himself, and he 
decided he could make more money as a doctor than cutting pine 
trees in the forest, bought a few books, and after a few months' 
study, went to another town where he was not known and hung out 
his sign as Dr. Smith. By reading up his cases as they came and 
the knowledge he had of the use of quinin, calomel and jalap, 
ipecac, lobelia and venesection, he had fair success and built up 
quite a practice, yet in all cases of sore throat the quill was ready 
for use as a specialty. In a neighboring town there was a case of 
obstetrics with two doctors in attendance. The doctors failing to 
deliver the woman, the husband proposed sending for Dr. Smith as 
further counsel. The doctor came and after ascertaining the con- 
dition of the woman turned to one of the doctors and said, "have 
you quilled her ?" "No ; what is that ?" "I will show you doctors 
how it is clone." He put some snuff in a quill, stepped to the bed- 
side and blew it into the nostrils of the suffering and discouraged 
lady. The snuff made her sneeze, the sneezing loosened an impacted 
head, and a boy was born, much to the astonishment of the two 
doctors. Dr. Smith said, "That is what you should have done 
twelve hours ago," and left with a good round fee. 

Dr. Delaskie Miller was Professor of Obstetrics and Diseases of 
Women and Children. He alone has survived the vicissitudes and 
changes of the past two score years, and we hoped to meet him at 
this banquet and reunion and to have the opportunity to extend to 
him our best respects, our sincere regards — to honor and bless him 
for what he did for us in the long ago when teaching the most 
important part of a student's curriculum, obstetrics and diseases of 
women and children. He was a thorough student, a fine speaker 
and a teacher of the highest order. He told us nothing of microbes, 
bacteria, bacilli, gonococcus, staphylococcus, streptococcus, coli 
communis or other pathological germs which to-day are known to 
be the causative agents of many of the diseases of the puerperal 
woman. These germs were unknown then, for antiseptic surgery 
and aseptic obstetrics were not born four decades ago. In dress, 
personal appearance and order, he was not excelled by any member 
of the college faculty. When he came into the lecture room he 
looked as though he had just come out of a band box, no dust on 
his black suit, clean hands, white cuffs and collar, shining boots 
and every hair smoothed clown in proper place glistening in the 
sun or gaslight. He taught cleanliness by example as well as 
precept. The active duties of this grand old man are finished. His 
life has not been a failure. His students and classes will honor 
and revere his name while he lives, and cherish his memory so long- 
as one of us is left to mourn a true and faithful friend and brother 
of the profession. 



22 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

Dr. Epliraim Ingals, Professor of Materia Medica, was a grad- 
uate of Rush in the class of 7 47. He lived to a good old age and 
died leaving a record of a life we might well emulate. We miss his 
cheerful, pleasant face at the state and various medical societies, 
where we have been accustomed to see him so often within the 
past few years. He had for some years retired from the active 
practice of his profession. Dr. Ingals requires no eulogy to remind 
you that his name stands high on the roll of honor of Bush Medical 
College as a writer, a teacher," a practitioner, an honest, just man. 
Honor to the memory of Dr. Ingals. Read his introductory address 
to the twenty-first annual course of lectures in Rush Medical Col- 
lege, delivered Oct. 7, 1863. 

A very conspicuous member of the faculty was Dr. R. L.' Rea, 
the Professor of Descriptive Anatomy. He was a fine proportioned 
man, six feet three or four in height, and at this time had coal black 
hair and his black eye was sharp and piercing. He was a tower of 
strength in the college force, and possessed a most remarkable and 
retentive memory. He was a rapid talker and a thorough anatomist. 
He could almost repeat Gray from cover to cover with surprising 
minuteness, and it required close attention to keep up with him. 
He was so thorough in his daily examinations that the careless 
students would take the top seats in the ampitheater to avoid his 
personal quiz, and then they did not always succeed. He had no 
sympathy for an indifferent, lazy student of anatomy, and he 
always encouraged those who tried to master this dry and often 
uninteresting study. His strong personality, force and energy of 
character and friendliness of manner made him many true and 
sincere friends everywhere, and after the fire of 1871, when he 
resigned his chair in the college, old Rush lost one of the best men 
who ever taught anatomy in this or any other college in the city 
of Chicago. 

Dr. J. W. Freer occupied the chair of Physiology and Surgical 
Anatomy. He was a plain, unassuming man, and although not an 
orator, he made his lectures and illustrations so plain that no 
student should leave his classes without being benefited, and the 
subjects of his lectures quite well understood. He was a physiolo- 
gist of high order, a skillful surgeon, and performed many inter- 
esting experiments to illustrate the topic of his lectures. He 
succeeded Dr. Blainey as president of the college. When he was an 
army enrollment officer some homeopathic doctors in Chicago pre- 
ferred charges against him with regard to the performance of his 
duties as Enrolling Surgeon. " Some of you remember, after a 
thorough investigation by the Provost Marshall General, the repu- 
tation and professional standing of the doctor were entirely sus- 
tained and the charges were without foundation, groundless and 



RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 23 

unworthy of note. Dr. Freer had the strongest contempt for the 
homeopathic fraternity of any one of the professors, and he did not 
hesitate to declare his convictions in a not uncertain manner. 

In 1863 this country was engaged in a mighty civil war. Sur- 
geons and assistants were called for, and Eush sent many of her 
Alumni and students to the tented fields or army hospitals in the 
southland, Dr. J. V. Z. Blainey among the number. His place was 
filled by Ezra Carr of Wisconsin. He was a good speaker of pleas- 
ing address and manner, and performed many interesting experi- 
ments before his classes, and he could hold the attention of his 
students in analytical and experimental chemistry second only to 
Dr. Blainey, who was the peer of all chemists in the northwest. At 
this time Dr. Blainey held the position of Medical Superintendent 
of the. Hospital of the Peninsula, and thus the name of Ezra Carr 
is found on the diplomas of the '58 graduates of the class of 1862- 
1863. 

It is unnecessary for me to remind you of the alumni and pro- 
fessors of Old Eush who have distinguished themselves as writers, 
teachers, practitioners and surgeons, who have ascended the ladder 
of medical lore to near the top round, honored and respected at 
home, banquetted and feted in foreign lands. The ,old are passing, 
many new men are filling their places. A classmate of mine, Pen- 
brook K. Thombs, died a few weeks ago in Pueblo, Colo. His chair 
was near mine in the college ampith eater. He was a diligent 
student, achieved success as a practitioner and surgeon, and held 
the position of superintendent of one of the insane asylums of 
Colorado. 

Dr. Leslie E. Keeley, of the class of '64, gained notoriety and 
wealth by what he termed a new treatment for inebriety or cure 
for the liquor habit. He built institutes in many cities, the prin- 
cipal one located at Dwight, Ilk, where many of this class of 
patients went or were taken to be shot hypodermically with 
strychin, atropin, morphia or apomorphin. His success finally 
started a craze and cures for the opium and liquor habits were 
started in cities and villages all over the country. Keeley is dead 
and so is his cure, and the appetite for intoxicating liquors still 
continues. 

Time will not permit me to speak of the changes, inventions and 
progress which has been made in pharmacy, therapeutics and sur- 
gery since we were students of medicine, or to refer at length to 
the use- and growth of the fads of faith cure, Christian science, 
magnetic healing, Dowieism or osteopathy. They do not belong to 
our college days. Forty years ago A. II. Still had not discovered 
that all diseases were caused by dislocated bones, muscles or nerves. 
The eccentric and visionary Dowie had not thought of proclaiming 
himself the second Elijah or building a Zion in Chicago. Then 



24 KUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION. BULLETIN 

Mother Eddy had not yet conceived Christian science or given out 
to the world that there was no such thing as pain, all in the imagi- 
nation, and faith cure was slumbering in its infancy. They are the 
product of the times. They are the outgrowth of superstition and 
fraud. They are the meccas of religious fanatics and the hopes and 
delight of the avaricious character. Is it our fault they have sprung 
up and multiply so rapidly? Is it our fault the humbug of oste- 
opathy is approved by the state laws of Illinois ? If this is true we 
have been neglectful of our duty towards ourselves and the com- 
munities who look to us for that which will confer the greatest 
happiness and blessing on all mankind, health. 

In one of the public schools a number of small pupils were 
engaged in working problems in multiplication. After some time 
the teacher noticed one little fellow who seemed unhappy. His 
cheeks were flushed and tears were very near the surface. The 
teacher said in a very kindly tone : "Well, Johii, what is the 
matter?" "Oh, dear, I wish I were a rabbit." "A rabbit!" 
exclaimed the teacher in astonishment, "why on earth would you 
like to be a rabbit"; "well, my papa says they multiply so fast." 
These fads of pretended healing and their followers are like the 
rabbits, they multiply exceedingly fast. A story is told of a farmer 
who had a family consisting of a wife, one son and five grown 
girls. Just before a presidential election he was discussing some 
of the political questions of the day with a friend who asked him 
how he and his family stood on the candidates. "Bill is a prohibi- 
tionist; I am all right for Harrison, but the old woman and the 
girls are terrible split up." Such is the condition of a community 
where Christian science, Dowieism, faith cure or osteopathy has 
turned the heads of many otherwise intelligent and educated people 
who believe in their unscientific creeds and belief as the cause and 
cure of human, ills. 

In conclusion I will refer in a few words to then and now. Forty 
years ago Rush had seven professors of the regular course, seven of 
the spring term and the demonstrator of anatomy. A regular 
course was sixteen weeks, with a preliminary course of three weeks 
and a short spring term, and two regular courses only required for 
graduation. To-day, in 1902, with Rush affiliated with Chicago 
University, there are 117 professors, assistants and instructors, and 
the time of study has been increased to four years of nine months 
each and a high grade preliminary examination required before 
entering college. 

We envy the class of 1902 because of the superior opportunities 
you have had in studying every part or branch of the art and 
science of medicine and surgery under so many able professors and

and hospital work which we did not have. 



RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 25 

Gentlemen of the class of 1902, we welcome you at the portals of 
a noble profession. We know and realize that our step is less firm, 
our locks are white with time and age, and soon the mantle of our 
faith, experience and labor will fall, and I know of no better men 
to take up and continue our work than this, the second class of the 
new century. 



CENTRAL CHINA FAMINE RELIEF COMMITTEE 

Ruling, June 4, 1912. 
Dr. John M. Dodson, Chicago, III. 

My Dear Dr. Dodson: — Both of us are here in the mountains for 
.five months or so of language study. While in Shanghai there 
were so many interruptions that I got behind in this respect. 
Instead, I got some valuable experience doing Red Cross work with 
Gen. Li Yuan Hung's arnry. It would have amused (and shocked) 
some of our good Rush teachers had they seen one of their students 
trying to do surgery in the interior of China under the stress of 
war. The next nearest foreigner was 2 miles away. My mainstay 
was an English-speaking Chinese medical student, who had never 
seen an operation or given an anesthetic. For nurses I had just 
ordinary coolies hired on the street or sent to me by army officers 
each time they brought in a new lot of wounded. The hospital 
was a makeshift, with indescribable sanitary conditions. I had to 
eat Chinese. food, made ready by a dirty one-eyed cook. The operat- 
ing-room was also my office, dining-room, rest-room and laboratory. 
We had to use chloroform. There were no rubber gloves or 
sterilizers. 

Of the first three operations I undertook to do, two of the 
patients had to be resuscitated most violently for fear they might 
die on the table, and in the middle of the operation I had to take 
time out for a long argument with my man "Friday," the med- 
ical student, who absolutely refused to continue the anesthetic. 
He said the patient always kept getting blue in the face and refused 
to breathe ; moreover, the medicine made him sick ' . . . would 
I please ask the coolie to pour it on? 

We had word from Dr. Korns. He was very busy during the 
war. Dr. Johnstone, unfortunately, has not been very well since 
his arrival. 

As to our future plans, we do not know. We were slated for a 
hospital in Hunan province, but there has come a call to take up a 
national campaign along the lines of sanitation and hygiene in 
connection with the work of the Department of Health under the 
new government. I realize the great opportunity this sort of 
work implies, but I do not feel quite big enough for the job. As a 
matter of fact, I have never had any sort of special training which 



26 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

would qualify me for such an important position. The project is 
being backed by the Young Men's Christian Association. The 
China Medical Association (composed mostly of missionaries as 
yet) will also go into the scheme, according to a letter from my 
uncle now in Scotland. One reason this call has come to me is the 
fact that Uncle Philip Cousland is the president of the Associa- 
tion, and I tried to make it clear that I want to stand on my own 
feet and not benefit by any pull. However, after many letters, I 
have been promised three years, in which my main task will be to 
get the language. Later the necessary financial support will be 
given for a laboratory and lecture department, with provision for 
more men once the project is on its feet. 

Mr. Brockman, the National Secretary of the Y. M. C. A., has 
placed the matter into the hands of John E. Mott, of New York, 
who will seek to get my release from the missionary board under 
which I came out. 

If this plan carries I will be in a position to send you some little 
material should you add parasites peculiar to the Orient to your 
course in parasitology. There is a wonderful field out here for 
investigators. I have been able to gather only a few specimens, 
but already I have gotten hold of a parasite which is stumping all 
the old-timers. Everybody asks, "What is it?" 

The new Harvard Medical School of China is making a great 
hit with the Chinese. Their strong point of approach is the fact 
that Harvard at home offers a course which fits a man to do a large 
work as public health officer. They plan to adapt the same course 
to conditions out here, and the Chinese are falling right into line. 

If there are certain specimens the school wants from the Orient, 
let me know and I will try and get them for you. 

Cordially yours, W. W. Peter.

create living things on Earth. I was born a catholic and forsed to take all

Garland Combination 
Abdominal Retractor 

MADE TO OBTAIN EXPOSURE IN PELVIC WORK 

Combining the usefulness of the Gosset and Doyan Retractors, each suitably modified. 
This instrument was made from a special design with some slight modification. The Gos- 
set is changed to obtain a fixed point to hold the middle blade of the instrument. This is 
procured by an extra bar on which is a sliding set screw. The Doyan is fitted with a short 
flat handle about an inch wide and six inches long, with a central open portion throughout 
the entire length. The application is very simple. After placing the self-retaining portion 
in the wound with the cross-bars toward the lower end of the incision, the necessary Lat- 
eral Traction is procured by separating the limbs of the instrument. The secend part is 
now placed in the wound and tracted into the lower part of the incision until the desired 
exposure is obtained, when the screw is clamped, fixing the blade.

A METHOD OF SELECTION OF DONOR FOE 
BLOOD TRANSFUSION * 

MORRIS FISHBEIN, M.D. 

CHICAGO 

The possibility of iso-agglutination makes the choice of a donor 
for blood transfusion an important matter. It has been shown that 
individuals fall into definite groups as regards this phenomenon, 
and only a person belonging to the same group as the patient who 
is to be transfused should be selected as donor. It is obvious that 
it is unsafe to transfuse with the blood of a donor whose serum will 
agglutinate the patient's corpuscles, or whose corpuscles are agglu- 
tinated by the patient's serum, and still more so when both these 
reactions occur. Cases with seemingly unfavorable results under 
these conditions have been reported by Schultz, 1 Ottenberg 2 and 
Hopkins. 3 

The following method may be used for carrying out such tests : 
So far as the blood of the donors to be tested is concerned, sufficient 
blood may be obtained from the ear ; but in the case of the patient 
it would be better to draw the blood from the median basilic vein 
of the arm in the usual way because more serum is required. Three 
drops of the blood are added to 10 c.c. of a 1 per cent, solution of 
sodium citrate in physiologic salt solution. In this manner approx- 
imately a 2 per cent, suspension of the blood is prepared, the citrate 
preventing coagulation. The remaining blood is poured into a 
centrifuge tube and allowed to clot. With a clean needle the clot 
is loosened from the side of the tube and the tube centrifuged for a 
few minutes to obtain an upper layer of absolutely clear serum. 
This completes the preparation of material, with the exception of 
the plate which is now to be described and which has been found 
to be very serviceable. On an ordinary piece of window glass, 
approximately 2 by 4 inches in size, which has been washed abso- 
lutely clean with water and ether, ten small circles are made with 
melted paraffin, assuming that a choice is to be made among five 
donors. If the melted paraffin is drawn up into a medicine-dropper, 
the circles are quickly made with the tip while gentle pressure is

exerted on the bulb. Ten circles may be made with one medicine- 
dropper full of melted paraffin. In this manner ten paraffin cups 
are made, each of which will hold at least 4 drops. The circles are 
made in two rows of five each. In each cup in the first row is placed 
1 drop of the suspension of the patient's blood, and in each cup in 
the second row are placed 2 drops of the patient's serum. To Cup 

1 in the first row are added 2 drops of serum of Donor 1, to Cup 2, 

2 drops of serum of Donor 2, etc. To Cup 1 in the second row is 
added 1 drop of the blood of Donor 1, and to Cup 2, 1 drop of the 
blood of Donor 2, etc. There are therefore required in such a set 

5 drops of patient's blood suspension, and 10 drops of patient's 
serum, and 1 drop of each donor's blood suspension and 2 drops of 
serum. With a narrow glass rod the fluids are mixed thoroughly, 
the rod being washed in citrate solution and wiped after each mix- 
ing. In practically all instances, iso-agglutination when present 
becomes visible macroscopically after half an hour at room temper- 
ature : the mixture can be inspected easily under the microscope 
also. It is obvious that in testing for iso-agglutination in larger 
groups, as in twenty, the greatest advantage is to be derived from 
this method. It has seemed so simple and easy of performance in 
comparison with other methods that it was thought best to make a 
brief report of it. 



CONTRIBUTION" TO THE BACTERIOLOGY OF PERI- 
TONITIS WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO 
PRIMARY PERITONITIS * 

(From the Pathological Laboratory of Rush Medical College, Chicago) 
MORRIS FISHBEIN 

The purpose of this report is a discussion of the records of bac- 
teriologic examinations made of material obtained from the peri- 
toneal cavity after death from peritonitis, and a comparison of the 
results obtained from analysis of the reports of Rush Medical 
College with other similar reports. 

It has been found that the anatomic character of the inflamma- 
tion, as, for instance, purulent, sero-fibrinous, hemorrhagic, etc.. 
does not bear any relationship to the nature of the primary lesion 
when such exists, nor does it seem to be influenced by the presence 
of various bacteria alone, or in combinations of various kinds. 

For purposes of classification, the method proposed by Flexner 1 
in 1898 has been employed, in that it is simple, distinct, and a real

expression of clinical and bacteriologic etiology. Peritonitides have 
been divided into primary, exogenous and endogenous types. Prim- 
ary peritonitis occurs as a result of previous chronic disease or 
infectious focus elsewhere in the body, and is either hematogenous 
or lymphogenous. Exogenous peritonitis occurs as a result of wound 
infection, and includes laparotomies with subsequent peritonitis. 
Endogenous peritonitis occurs as a result of organisms coining from 
foci in relation to the peritoneal cavity, the most common cause 
being various affections of the appendix. Further division is then 
made into pure and mixed types. 

In the following table are included all cases of peritonitis in the 
Rush records, in which bacteriological examinations were made :

associated with affections of the appendix, that affections of the

The majority of all cases of peritonitis are endogenous in char- 
acter and are associated with a combination of the colon bacillus 
and other organisms, usually staphylococci and streptococci. 

Exogenous peritonitis occurs much less commonly with perfect- 
ing of operative aseptic technic and with, lessening of exploratory 
laparotomy, instrumental abortion, etc. 

Primary peritonitis forms a larger proportion of acute cases than 
is commonly supposed. For this reason and because of the interest 
attached to this subject, a further analysis was made of all cases 
coming under this classification. 

In the decade from 1870 to 1880, the subject of idiopathic peri- 
tonitis received considerable attention from various writers (Collie, 3 
Lewis, 4 Meade, 5 Scmple, and others) who advanced various theories 
as to its origin without any actual bnsis on which to found their

conclusions. They considered the subject from a purely clinical 
standpoint, and attempted to solve the origin of the condition, 
finally associating it with sleeping in draught, catching cold, etc. 

A long gap in medical attention to this subject follows until the 
work of Flexner in 1898. Nothnagel, 7 in 1901, argued against the 
idea of a primary hematogenous peritonitis. The work of Arm- 
strong, 8 Spencer, 9 and Sheldon 10 offers interesting suggestions as 
explanation for primary peritonitis, but neglects the more simple 
for more complicated and unique theories. 

Of the thirty-nine cases of primary peritonitis in 181 cases 
included in the Rush records, in eighteen instances a pneumonia 
was present. In order to make clear the conditions existing in the 
other instances, the records were carefully studied and the anatomic 
diagnosis analyzed. In seven cases there is an associated endocar- 
ditis, chronic in type, often also a pleuritis. In four cases hyper- 
plasia of lymphoid tissue was marked. In four cases suppurative 
foci are present elsewhere in the body, distant from the peritoneum. 
Besides these, there is one case of marasmus in tuberculosis, one 
case of premature birth with congenital syphilis, and a case of 
generalized blastomycosis. In .three cases a cirrhosis of the liver 
was present. 

SUMMARY 

Peritonitis avouIc! seem, therefore, in the light of the results here 
given, to be most commonly associated bacteriologically with a 
combination of the bacillus coli and other organisms, usually 
staplrylococci and streptococci. The origin clinically is usually 
endogenous, affections of the appendix being of major importance, 
the female organs of generation being next in importance. Exog- 
enous peritonitis is becoming exceedingly rare with improvement 
of aseptic technic in the handling of wounds and in operative 
methods. 

But one complete report of bacteriological conditions in peri- 
tonitis at time of operation is available. The work of Dudgeon and 
Sargent 11 gives conclusions somewhat at variance with those deter- 
mined by post-mortem examinations of peritoneal exudates and 
should, therefore be confirmed, with a view to arriving at the rela- 
tion between the condition existing at the time of operation to that 
found post-mortem. In connection with this point, it is of extreme 
interest to note that recently the question of the relation of anae- 
robic bacteria to appendicitis particularly is attracting much atten- 
tion. Eunebero- 12 and Hevde 13 have shown that in many instances

of appendicitis anaerobes predominated over aerobic bacteria and 
agglutinated with patient's serum in higher dilutions. Other 
writers basing their conclusions on similar experiments state that 
bacillus coli is of most importance etiologically (Kotzenberg 14 and 
Klienberger. 15 ) It would seem, therefore, that both aerobic and 
anaerobic cultures and determinations had best be made in all 
instances. 

The gonococcus has never been demonstrated culturally in peri- 
toneal fluids post-mortem, according to the various reports of large 
numbers of cases. By the clinical history, in many instances, we 
are led to believe that the gonococcus is the exciting cause of many 
peritonitises. In all probability, therefore, its presence has not 
been shown because of lack of development in cultivating methods, 
or because special efforts have not been made to secure it. Because 
of its great clinical importance, this fact should not be overlooked 
in future work of this nature. 

Primary peritonitis is more common than is ordinarily supposed. 
In this report 25 per cent, of all cases are of the primary type. Each 
of these cases is a subject for investigation. In practically all cases 
there is a lowered resistance of the individual due to some chronic 
condition, as an atrophic cirrhosis of the liver, a chronic endocarditis 
and tonsillitis, marasmus, diabetes, etc. In such conditions the 
resistance of the peritoneum must be lowered to such an extent- that 
where ordinarily the highly resistant tissue might combat infection 
with organisms carried by the blood-stream, in such instances it 
becomes the seat of an acute peritonitis which may prove fatal unless 
proper handling be undertaken after the condition is recognized. 
In other conditions where a suppurative focus exists elsewhere in the 
body, or where an infected puerperal uterus, or acutely infected 
tonsils pour virulent bacteria into the blood-stream, we have the 
other factor for a terminal or acute infection of the peritoneum, 
namely, a virulent organism. In still other cases, where we have 
both virulent organisms in large quantity, and a lowered resistance 
of the individual, we may readily have a condition resembling an 
endogenous peritonitis, where through rupture of an appendix, for 
example, large quantities of bacteria and toxic material are poured 
out on an intact peritoneum, the latter lowering its resistance and 
the former setting up an acute peritonitis. It would seem, then, 
that the word "idiopathic" could be entirely dispensed with in 
regard, to peritonitis, as manifestly close scrutiny yields some source 
for the condition. The bacteria get into the peritoneal cavity and 
the inflammation of the peritoneum is a manifestation of their 
presence. In the absence of a known exogenous or a demonstrated 
endogenous source, it is important to determine whether any means 
by which the organisms gained entrance into the blood or lymph 
stream is demonstrable.

A CUTANEOUS REACTION IN GONOCOCCAL 
INFECTIONS- 

(From the Memorial Institute for Infectious Diseases.) 
ERNEST E. IRONS 

In 1903, while studying the effects of gonococcal vaccines in 
gonococcal arthritis, I noted that the subcutaneous inoculation of 
dead gonococci in persons suffering from gonococcal infections fre- 
quently was followed in from twelve to twenty-four hours by local 
and general reaction. 1 This reaction consists of an area of redness, 
swelling and tenderness at the site of the inoculation, often an 
increase in pain and tenderness in the affected joints and other 
localizations, together with symptoms of general malaise, and some- 
times increase in fever and leukocytosis. These phenomena resem- 
ble those seen in the tuberculin reaction, and are of value in the 
diagnosis of obscure cases, in which gonococcal infection is 
suspected. 

This reaction has been observed by Brack 2 in epididymitis, by 
Reiter 3 in pelvic infections in women, and also by others. Brack 
has described a "cutireaction" in gonorrhea on injection of gono- 
coccal vaccine. 

In recent experiments with glycerin extracts of the gonococcus I 
have found that a well-defined cutaneous reaction, similar to the 
cutaneous tuberculin reaction, occurs in cases of gonococcal infec- 
tion, when the extract is introduced into the skin by the method of 
von Pirquet. 

In positive cases in from twelve to twenty-four hours, an area of 
hyperemia from 5 to 10 mm. in diameter appears around the point 
of inoculation of the extract. Frequently a definite papule develops. 
The control inoculation, using a similarly prepared glycerin extract 
of the washings from the same number of uninoculated culture 
tubes, shows only the point of needle puncture. In normal persons, 
and in those suffering from non-gonococcal infections, the inocula- 
tion of the gonococcal extract produces no more reaction than the 
control inoculation, or at most a small area of redness 2 to 3 mm. 
in diameter. 

Cases of gonococcal infection have been tested simultaneously 
with extracts prepared from several strains of gonococci, singly or 
combined in one preparation. The reaction to one strain is occa- 
sionally more pronounced than to the others. This observation 
tends to support the view that various strains of the gonococcus 
may differ in the reactions. of immunity which they produce, and a

combined extract of many strains may be desirable for practical 
use. The cutaneous inoculation offers several obvious advantages 
over the subcutaneous injection of vaccines. Like other tests, it no 
doubt will be found to have its limitations, and its value in the 
diagnosis of gonococcal infections is now being tested. 



DE. FENGER'S AUTOBIOGRAPHY * 

I was born at Breininggaard, Breininge Sogn in Ringkj oping 
Ami, November 3, 1840. My father, Kainmerraad Hans Fritz 
Fenger, was the owner of Breininggaard, and was there married to 
my mother, Frederikke Mathilde Fjelstrup, daughter of Etastraad 
Fjelstrup, the owner of Sindinggaard in Holstebro Amt. In 1848 
my father moved to Nordgaarden near Ringsted. In 1851 I entered 
Herlufsholm school, where I graduated in 1859 with marks of the 
second grade. 

Love of the natural sciences led me to begin at the Polyteknisk 
Liireanstalt with the object of passing the examination for civil 
engineer, but after one year I yielded to my father's wishes and 
commenced to study medicine, and in the winter of 18 60- (31 I 
passed the "examen philosophicum" with the grade of "Laud." In 
1863 I passed the first medical examination with good marks (anat- 
omy, zoology, chemistry, botany). During my studies I earned part 
of my expenses by teaching in MelchiorVHigh School, and later 
by giving instruction to medical students in anatomy and by coach- 
ing students of dentistry for their examinations. My father had 
twelve children, and struggled hard in order to give nearly ail of 
the seven sons an opportunity to study. In 1861 I served as assist- 
ant physician at Augustenborg Lazareth, under Studsgaard, physi- 
cian-in-chief, whom I always think of with admiration and friend- 
ship. A few years previously my father had bought a large farm 
(Augustenberg Ladegaard) and my home became a pleasant gather- 
ing place for many Danish officers until the unfortunate crossing 
of Als drove our army on to Fyen, where I was assistant physician 
for a battery at Assens. After the war was ended I continued the 
study of medicine, passed the examination for the practice of medi- 
cine in 1866-67 with the grade of "Laud." 

Dr. Vilhelm Meyer, who had shown me great friendliness during 
a sickness while I was a student, now appointed me as amanuensis 
in his ear clinic and in his private practice, and here I had the 
opportunity to take part in the investigations which led to Dr. 
Meyer's celebrated article "Concerning the Adenoid Vegetations in

that he furnish a sketch of his life, and accordingly, on January 1, 1002, while 
staying at the Hotel Coronado, in San Diego, Cal., Dr. Fenger wrote this sketch 
of ids life in Danish.

the Naso-Pharynx." In 1869 I entered as interne the Eoyal Fred- 
erick's Hospital. Professor Mathias Laxtorp, chief of the surgical 
division, had opposed my appointment because I was amanuensis 
to "German" Meyer. Mayor Ehlers, to whom I owe so much for 
friendship and help through many years, assisted me to obtain the 
position as interne. During the two years which I served as interne 
not a word was spoken between Professor Laxtorp and me. 

During this time I wrote an essay on a prize topic in medicine, 
"Concerning Subperiosteal Operations (Oilier) and Evidement 
(Sedillot)," which was accepted by the university; at the same time 
I made experiments concerning gunshot wounds of horses at the 
Royal Veterinary College, and constructed instruments for the 
purpose of finding bullets in the tissues and taking them out, and 
a paper entitled "Concerning the Endoscopy of Gunshot Wounds" 
led to a grant from the Royal Danish Ministry of War to assist me 
to take part in the Franco-German war of 1871. In January, 1871, 
I was appointed by Professor Socin of Basel to an international 
ambulance on the battlefield of Bourtaki-Werden (Haute Saone), 
where I worked until the end of the war and wrote a report on 
endoscopy of gunshot wounds. 

After the war I went to Vienna where I studied pathologic 
anatomy and surgery, returning to Denmark in the winter of 1870- 
71 [?]. By means of the assistance of Etatsraad Ehlers I was 
appointed in 1871 prosector to the Communehospital, where I wrote 
my thesis for the degree of Doctor of Medicine, "On Cancer of the 
Stomach," which I defended in 1874, and also several other papers, 
which were printed in Nordis/d MedicinsM Archiv (Acute Hydro- 
nephrosis, Gonorrheal Rheumatism, Endoscopy of Urethra, Stenosis 
of Ostium Pulmonale), whereupon I received one of the Smith 
grants for advanced studies. 

In 1875, during the illness of Professor Rasmussen, I was 
appointed docent in pathologic anatomy and instructed the students 
in this branch, in which Professor Reiz held the examinations. Pro- 
fessor Reiz told me that my students passed just as good examina- 
tions as those who had done the work previously under his own 
direction, which was an encouragement coming from a man whom 
I always think of with admiration and gratitude for friendship 
through many years. 

At this time the professorship of pathologic anatomy became 
vacant on account of the death of Professor Rasmussen. I was 
prepared to take part in the competition for this professorship, but, 
inasmuch as the place was given to Professor Carl Lange without 
competition, I felt that my road to an academic career was blocked. 
I resolved to leave Denmark in order to reach an independent posi- 
tion more rapidly, but I had no money, and at this point Etastraad 
Ehlers again came to my assistance with a gratuitous loan which I 
was able to return fourteen years later. My gratitude to him for 



12 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

advice, help, and friendship will last always. I was not disappointed 
or depressed because I did not obtain the professorship in pathologic 
anatomy, and for the following reasons: I had always been greatly 
interested in surgery and had regarded the study of pathologic 
anatomy and pathology as the means of entering surgery as my 
final object, my work in surgery having already been commenced in 
the two wars in which I had taken part. Assistant-surgeon at the 
Frederick's Hospital I could not become because of my relations 
with Professor Laxtorp. The same position at the Commune- 
hospital had been filled just as I had ceased to be prosector for that 
hospital. I consequently could not see any immediate opportunity 
to commence the further study of surgery. Inasmuch as surgery 
interested me more than pathology, it was in reality a help for me 
that Professor Carl Lange was appointed, because it freed me from 
the obligation of continuing with pathology as my life's work, and 
gave me the right to seek elsewhere opportunities where I might be 
able to dedicate myself to surgery. 

My brother, Dr. Sophus Fenger, had emigrated to Egypt in 1873, 
and practiced medicine in Alexandria. In the spring of 1875 I 
went to Alexandria in order to assume his practice while he visited 
Denmark in order to be married; as he returned the next winter, 
I went to Cairo, where I resided with my friend, Dr. Bull. In 
Alexandria I did not receive much help from the Danish Consul 
Dumreiter, to whom I brought letters of recommendation from the 
Eoyal Danish Minister for Foreign Affairs, but rather from the 
Norwegian and Swedish general Consul, Mr. Anker Boedtker, who 
was a faithful friend and helped me .to become a member of the 
Board of Health — "Conseil Sanitaire" — later to an appointment in 
Cairo as "Mediein du Quarter der Kalifa," a salaried position as 
district physician under the lovable Dr. Ahata Bey, chief of medical 
affairs in Cairo. Here I investigated Egyptian eye disease — trach- 
oma — in the children in the public schools, which was followed by 
a report about it to the government. 

After the war in Abyssinia in 1875 an epidemic disease of horses 
and mules was brought into the country, and all the horses in Cairo 
died. I was ordered to investigate this disease, and made a series of 
post-mortem examinations, followed by a report to the government. 
In 1876 I was attacked by dysentery, followed by inflammation of 
the liver, which interrupted my investigations in the large military 
hospital, Kasr Elajan, "Concerning Distomum Haematobium Bil- 
harzii," and in the winter of 1876-77 I was compelled to go to 
Europe to Mentone, in order to get well. The Egyptian govern- 
ment granted me leave of absence with full pay during this time, 
and at the end of the winter I returned to Cairo quite well. 

After a little, in the spring of 1877, the liver disease again 
appeared, and I was compelled again to go to a temperate climate. 
In Cairo I had been physician for a part of the American colony, 



RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 13 

and among them certain American officers, whom Khedive Ismail 
Pasha had brought in, in order to reform the Egyptian army. Fol- 
lowing the advice of Captain General Stone's amiable wife, a near 
relative of the poet, Longfellow, I resolved to go to America — so 
much the more as an American officer in the Egyptian service, 
Major Irgens, on leave of absence on account of disease after the 
Abysinian war, wished me to accompany him to Bloomington, 111., 
where he was well acquainted. I now resigned (June, 1877), and 
traveled with ship from Alexandria to Liverpool, and further on 
to New York. 

I received no encouragement to locate in New York, and traveled 
on to Chicago, in order to get through to Bloomington or to San 
Francisco, possibly to practice ophthalmology. My able and lovable 
countryman, Dr. S. Jacobsen, resided in Chicago. When I asked 
him for advice with reference to my plans for the future, he told 
me that I might as well locate in Chicago as any other place, and 
especially since my funds were practically exhausted. I then lived 
in a Scandinavian part of the city and had a little practice. 

In the spring of 1878 I secured, by means of borrowed money, a 
place as physician to Cook County Hospital, and~here~I commenced 
to give lectures and demonstrations in pathologic anatomy, a science 
which was unknown to the physicians there. The following year I 
served on the surgical services when my colleagues were away on 
their vacations. At this hospital I served first as pathologist, later 
as surgeon for twelve to fourteen years, and introduced the anti- 
septic — Lister's — operative methods. 

In 1880 I became curator of the Eush Medical College museum ; 
in 1884, Professor of Surgery in the College of Physicians and 
Surgeons, and Surgeon-in- Chief at the Passavant Hospital and the 
German Hospital, when these two hospitals were founded. In 1893 
I assumed the professorship of surgery in the Chicago Medical 
College, later the Northwestern University Medical School, and 
became surgeon to the Hospital of the Sisters of Mercy. In 1899 
I left this medical school in order to assume the position of Pro- 
fessor in Surgery in Eush Medical College, in affiliation with the 
University of Chicago, with a surgical service in the Presbyterian 
Hospital. In 1894 the Norwegians in Chicago erected the Lutheran 
Tabitha Hospital, and I assumed the position of Surgeon-in-Chief. 

In the course of these twenty-four years I have written every year 
three or four articles concerning surgical studies, which have been 
published in the American medical press. In 1898 I was requested 
by Professor Guyon, in Paris, to present a report concerning "Sur- 
gical Operations in Conditions of Eetention in the Kidneys to the 
International Medical Congress in Paris, in 1900," together with 
Professor Kiister, in Marburg, and Professor Bazy, in Paris, as 
coreferees. This article was published in Germany in Langenbeck's 
Archiv fur hlinische Chirurgie, and in America in the Annals of

Surgery. In 1895 I was Vice-President of the American Surgical 
Association, and in 1901 President of the Chicago Medical Society 
and the Chicago Surgical ■ Society. 

In 1900, on my sixtieth birthday, a testimonial banquet was given 
me in Chicago by about five hundred physicians, consisting of pupils 
and friends — a fine example of the willingness of the Americans to 
recognize the work that I have been able to carry out in their midst. 
I was presented with a loving-cup, on which were engraved my 
portrait of an inscription from the American medical profession, 
and an album, from the celebrated surgeon, Nicholas Senn, my 
colleague in Push Medical College, containing the autographs of 
those present. In 1891 it pleased His Poyal Highness, King 
Christian IX of Denmark, to honor me with the order of Knight 
of Dannebrog. For this honor from my native land I wish to 
present to his Majesty the King my most humble thanks. 

In 1878, in Chicago, I became acquainted with my wife, Caroline 
Sophie Abildgaard, daughter of M. C. Abildgaard, now owner of 
a farm near Clifton, 111., previously owner of Bjornsstrup in Hjorn- 
ing Amt in Jylland, where she was born in 1857, and whence she 
emigrated when five years old. She has been a faithful helper in 
the hard struggle to "make it go" in a strange land, a struggle 
which a happy home alone made it possible to bring to a successful 
end. We have one son, Frederick A. Fenger, nineteen years, who is 
a student at Cornell University, and a little daughter, Augusta 
Maria Fenger, seven years old. With gratitude and love for my old 
as well as for my adopted country, for all the help and all the good 
things which they have given me richly and without merit on my 
part, I shall endeavor as best I can to live and to act like a good son 
of them both. 



CONCERNING DP. CHRISTIAN FENGER 

Like most other great men of genius, Dr. Fenger is reputed to 
have been a man of mannerisms and some eccentricities. Many 
stories are told illustrating these characteristics and the following 
anecdotes may serve to give an idea of the inner character and the 
wit of this great Danish- American surgeon. 

When in 1900, a most representative gathering of the medical 
profession concluded to hold a banquet in his honor, on the occasion 
of his becoming a member of the order of Ridder of Dannebrog. a 
committee was selected to broach the matter to him. Dr. J. B. 
Murphy, speaking on the evening of the banquet said, "The modesty 
and true virtue of the man are illustrated by his remark, when this 
matter was guardedly broached to him, he said : c Yes, but I am not 
dead yet/ The response was 'But it is not necessary that all honors 
should be posthumous, Furthermore, you might not be as fortunate 



RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 15 

as Socrates in your biography; there is no medical Plato within our 
visual horizon 7 ; and saying he would not consent, consented." 

The following poem, by Dr. Lydston, was presented at this same 
banquet, but has been printed only in the souvenir booklet issued at 
that time. It is deemed worthy of repetition and wider circulation : 

THE WAIL OF A MEDICAL MOSSBACK 
G. Frank Lydston, '81 

Thar wuz a time when practicin' wuz jest the softest kind o' snap, 
When we doctors went right in an' cured a feller's case — "kerslap!" 
We'd call his sickness "biliousness," an' "agercake," or biles, 
An' never cared a blessed hang fer nomenclater styles; 
Ner never troubled much if we couldn't give the proper name — 
In the good ole palmy days afore — 

That durned Chris Fenger came. 

We'd whoop 'er up with calomel, git ackshun on the liver, 

An' if the feller treated avuz w r afted o'er the river — 

We might be kind o' meek an' humble fer quite a little spell, 

But feelin' that we'd done our duty an' done it mighty well, 

Signed the gloomy little stiff'kit with nary qualm or quiver — 

An' with nary hesitation that I ever could diskiver; 

An' no one ever said the doctor er his potions wuz ter blame — 

In the good ole easy days afore — 

That durned Chris Fenger came. 

We used ter puncture, slice an' saw, an' hew an' slash, 

Lettin' all di-ag-er-no-sis go ter everlastin' smash — 

Cuttin' out all lumps an' swellin's, an' kinds o' growin' tumor, 

Er burnin 'em out with caustic paste, accordin' to our humor. 

Folks never kicked ner asked no foolish questions then, 

An' everything wuz lovely frum bleedin' piles ter wens, 

Fer the things we used in treatment, they wuz very much the same — 

In the happy, peaceful days afore — 

That durned Chris Fenger came. 

We surely then had bugs enuff — yes, we'd bugs enuff ter burn, 

From bugs that give yer chronic itch ter bugs that make yer stomach turn — 

But thar wuzn't enny bugs that took. a telescope ter find 'cm;

Nicholas Semi said of Fenger: "He lias never written anything 
which has not found a permanent place in medical literature and 
that is not eagerly sought for hy all who respect progress and love 
science. Much of his time has been spent in the dead-house. Tt is 
there that he became a master in pathology, a distinction unani- 
mously granted him for more than a quarter of a century. To him 
anatomy is an open hook." 

In a certain medico-legal case in which Fenger was called as 
expert, a somewhat inexperienced .lawyer, seeing an apparently 
reticent witness, attempted by bluster and noise to cast doubt on 
such evidence as he might give. The following conversation ensued : 

"Dr. Fenger. vou are a surgeon, are von not?"' 

"Yes." 

"Have you ever seen an autopsy?" 

"Yes," 



RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 17 

"Dr. Fensrer, have vou ever performed an autopsy?" 

"Yes/' 

"Can you say truthfully that you have performed ten post- 
mortem examinations ?" 

"Yes." 

"Dr. Fenger, remember that you are here as a witness, sworn to 
tell the truth, can vou sav that vou have performed. 100 autopsies?" 

"Yes." 

At this point the attorney hitched, up his trousers, straightened 
his tie, and said: 

"Dr. Fencer, have you performed 200 autopsies?" 

"Yes." 

"Five hundred autopsies?" 

"Yes." 

"'One thousand autonsies?" 

"Yes." 

At this point the attorney feverishly mopped a perspiring brow 
and said: 

"Dr. Fenger, as a sworn witness, knowing the penalty of perjury, 
can you say that you have performed three thousand autopsies?" 

"YES," said Fenger, "and more too." 

It was at this point that the attorney moved an adjournment to 
a later date. 

It was this knowledge of jiathology which carried with all that 
Fenger wrote a note of conviction. His dead-house experience was 
enormous. 

In closing his address, Senn said : •"We are here to tender our 
congratulations to Fenger, the Scientist; we are here to express our 
feelings of gratitude to the teacher who taught the young men of 
our profession in this city how to use the microscope. We are here 
to honor the surgeon who planted the banner of aseptic surgery in 
Chicago and unceasingly instructed its followers in the technic of 
aseptic operations." 

In the Collected Works of Christian Fenger, is an article entitled, 
"Basal Hernias of the Brain." Like all articles written by Fenger, 
it is exceptionally complete. There is a case reported of which an 
abstract is given to illustrate with what detail he was wont to 
study his material. 

Synopsis. — Symptoms of obstruction of nose from early child- 
hood. Pedunculated polypus in left posterior nares, apparently 
somewhat compressible, pedicle located at root of nose. Suspicion 
of cerebral hernia. Attempt at positive diagnosis by aspiration of 
cerebrospinal fluid from polypus failed. 

"When this had been twice tried with negative results, I con- 
cluded that the tumor was an ordinary polypus and not a basal 
hernia and proceeded to remove the growth in the usual way with 
the wire snare. The loop was introduced through the left nostril, 



18 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

carried over the tumor, with the left index linger, and tightened 
with the ecraseur nntil resistance was encountered. I tightened 
the ecraseur and divided the pedicle. After withdrawal of the 
snare slight hemorrhage occurred, but neither coughing nor sneez- 
ing brought forth the tumor. The hemorrhage soon ceased, but 
was immediately folloAved by dripping of a clear, watery fluid of 
which I collected about a teaspoonful in a watch glass. This fluid, 
on being boiled, showed the presence of a small amount of albumin, 
and on the addition of nitrate of silver gave the characteristic 
white precipitate of chlorid of silver. As I concluded that the fluid 
was cerebrospinal and as I now desired to examine the tumor to 
make the diagnosis positive, I made the patient vomit, and this 
brought forth the tumor, as shown in the figure." 

The swearing of Fenger, mentioned in the poem, was a well- 
known characteristic. It is said to have been picturesque and lucid. 
The Fenger clinic used to follow a nose and throat clinic in the 
large amphitheater. One day he arrived early and found a tonsil- 
lectomy in progress with a large amount of bleeding and the con- 
sequent littering of the place with gauze. He sniffed, looked 
around and remarked: 

"Here is a lot of blood, but damn little surgery." 
But the following tale really merits the finishing place. The 
work of Fenger on surgery of the ureters and kidneys is best known. 
In one instance, he had transplanted both ureters into the rectum 
and with successful surgical results, though with a somewhat 
dubious attitude on the part of the patient who was somewhat 
inclined to complain. One morning as Fenger greeted the patient, 
the patient started in to make his usual complaint. 

"Veil," said Fenger, "you're a — ah, damn it — you're a 'bird." 
It is reported that here the complaint s^ave way to laughter.

DEDICATION OF THE JANE MUEDOCH MEMORIAL 

BUILDING * 

The Jane Murdoch Memorial Building was opened for use dur- 
ing the month of June. The dedicatory services were held on Sun- 
day afternoon, June 9, at 3 o'clock, with the president of the board, 
Mr. Day, presiding. 

ADDRESS OF ME. ALBERT M. DAY 

We are met here together this afternoon as friends, formally 
to dedicate our new building, which is called the Jane- Murdoch 
Memorial. The late Mr. Thomas Murdoch, for many years promi-

occurred at 3 p. m., June 9. at the hospital.

nent in this city as an honorable and able merchant, and also as a 
devoted Presbyterian, died Dec. 25, 1909. The residuary estate, 
amounting to about two millions of dollars, he willed was to be 
divided between the Young Men's Christian Association, American 
Sunday School Union and the Presbyterian Hospital. The will 
stipulated that "the said gift to The Presbyterian Hospital of Chi- 
cag be used in establishing and endowing a department of the hos- 
pital owned and controlled by said corporation, for women or 
children, or both; and such endowment shall be called the Jane 
Murdoch Memorial Fund, in memory of my sister Jane." The trus- 
tees of the will decided that the intent of Mr. Murdoch would be 
best fulfilled by the erection of a building where the department 
named can be administered to the best advantage. In accordance 
with this decision, the board of managers of the hospital proceeded 
to the erection of this building, on the site of what was known as 
the Eoss-Hamill wing. This latter building, the first occupied by the 
hospital, was named in honor of Drs. Joseph P. Boss and Robert C. 
JIamill, strong friends of the hospital in its early and struggling 
days, and members of its staff. At the time of its erection, fireproof 
construction was not known, and of late years the building has been 
very inadequate. But it served its purpose well in its day, and 
while it has given way to one better adapted to present conditions 
. and requirements, this new building will continue to be in a sense a 
memorial to those devoted men, and will carry a tablet stating that it 
stands on the site of the original building, which was named in their 
honor. 

The Jane Murdoch Memorial Building represents the best fire- 
proof construction, and is furnished with all the most approved 
appliances. 

Tt has a maternity of thirty-four beds, children's department, 
twenty-three beds : five wards, ten beds each ; one of four beds : nine 
rooms, and four wards of three beds each for the isolation of con- 
tagious diseases which may occur while patients are in the hospital, 
a total of 132 beds. There is a sun parlor and open-air pavilion on 
the roof, where the children can be taken, and if necessary can be 
kept permanently. A large space is given to the pathological 
department, and the laboratory in its equipment and arrangement 
has no superior. The hospital has taken a prominent position in 
its .T-ray work, and in this building is a suite of rooms for this 
department which has all the modern appliances and every approved 
apparatus. The facilities in these two departments, for examina- 
tions, for research and for accurate decisions in diagnosis, are the 
result of careful study on the part of the best authorities whose 
suggestions have been carried out without regard to expense. Eooms 
for interns,, with their dining-rooms, baths and recreation room, are 



20 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN ' 

on the first floor. In the basement is the kitchen, fully equipped 
with all modern conveniences, large refrigerators for all kinds of 
food and general store rooms. The refrigerators are all cooled by 
the refrigerating plant in the power house, obviating the use of ice. 
Much thought has been given to the arrangements for duty rooms, 
serving rooms and all necessities for such administration as will give 
the best possible care to the patients. Every detail was carefully 
considered by the superintendent, Mr. Bacon, and Miss McMillan, 
with the operating heads of every department, and while every 
unnecessary expense was rigidly eliminated, nothing was omitted 
which would contribute to the welfare of patients, and to the proper 
administration of the .work. 

This magnificent bequest of Mr. Murdoch, the largest gift ever 
made -to the hospital, marks a second great step in its advancement 
which began with the large bequest of the late Daniel A. Jones in 
1886. If there were no need for additional buildings, the hospital 
could be said to be established. Our work for the sick could be car- 
ried on in a plant entirely fireproof, with the best facilities ana* 
sanitary appliances,. and we should be able with the gifts that come 
to us yearly greatly to increase our charity work. But the impera- 
tive necessity for a nurses' home, which shall adequately and prop- 
erly house our nurses, compels us to continue our building opera- 
tions. Within the next twelve months we expect to have this home' 
completed, with a capacity for 150 nurses, and immediately oppo- 
site the hospital on Congress Street. This building, with the land 
comprising the entire block between Wood Street and Hermitage 
Avenue, is expected to cost $350,000. Of this amount we have 
$100,000, given by the friends of the late Mr. O. S. Sprague, for a 
memorial to him. The board of managers hesitated for a long time 
to incur this debt of $250,000, but finally realized that it -was 
imperative if we are to continue our present standard of efficiency. 
Therefore, we are going forward with the full belief that our friends 
will, at an nearly day, enable us to discharge this indebtedness, and 
to own our plant free of all encumbrance. ' 

This building should stand for many years as a memorial to 
Jane Murdoch and to Thomas Murdoch who provided for it in such 
a generous manner. And the example of this rare generosity, and 
thoughtful remembrance of the needs of the sick and poor of this 
city, should prove an inspiration to others, inciting more gifts until 
this hospital can come to the full measure of its usefulness. 



Dr. James B. Herrick, President of the Medical Board of the 
hospital, representing the medical staff, gave the next address. 



RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 21 

ADDRESS BY DR. JAMES B. HERRIOK 

The Presbyterian Hospital was founded with two high purposes, 
the caring for the sick and to aid in medical education. The Jane 
Murdoch Memorial Building enables the hospital as never before 
to fulfil these two functions. We shall be able better than ever 
before to care for the sick, particularly those of moderate means, and 
for the children and women. We shall further be able to do much 
better, more scientific and more thorough work because of the aid 
that we shall receive from these laboratories to which Mr. Day has 
already made reference. The hospital that confines itself solely to 
the treatment of the sick is somewhat dwarfed. To be kept alive 
and progressive it should have the stimulus of the necessity of 
instructing young, active, wide-awake undergraduates, interns and 
nurses. This addition to the hospital gives us these facilities for 
instructing the undergraduates in the college, the interns and 
nurses; it offers to the staff the opportunity of acquiring more 
knowledge, and it also gives us added facilities for work in research. 

Just a word regarding research in its relation to the hospital. 
By medical research, we understand the desire to add to the sum of 
knowledge concerning the human body and its functions, the human 
body in disease, and the causes, the means of warding off and of 
curing disease. It is the desire to find out something that was not 
previously known, concerning illness. Unless this spirit of research 
is in a hospital, unless it pervades the various branches of the medi- 
cal institution, the educational function of the hospital languishes, 
and the atmosphere becomes stale; things fail to progress and the 
patients suffer. The Presbyterian Hospital has been peculiarly 
fortunate in its relation to research workers. There have always 
been cordial relations between research in Push Medical College and 
the Presbyterian Hospital. The same cordial relations have existed 
between the workers in the McCormick Memorial Institute for 
Infectious Diseases and the Presbyterian Hospital ; > and latelv 
friendly relations of advantage to both parties have been entered 
into with the Otho A. Sprague Institute workers in problems of 
research. To us in the hospital this means a great deal. You have 
no idea what a stimulus it is for us of the medical staff to be in con- 
stant touch with these progressive men, who are trying to find out 
new things; and you have no idea how helpful it has been to be able 
to call upon these workers who are so closely related to us. We call 
upon their professional and expert skill oftener than you would per- 
haps realize. 

And yet no matter what view we may take, the central figure in 
the hospital is and should be the patient. Are we doing our full 
duty to these patients? Are we nursing them carefully? Are we 
treating them sanely and as conscientiously as we can? When we 
send them home restored in health, is it not one of our functions 



22 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

still to help and to train the patients in various ways? Do not say 
that duty ceases when they leave the hospital. Can we not then help 
to instruct them, to train them after they leave the hospital ? I do 
not refer to those little lessons of obedience to authority, lessons in 
cleanliness, in the rights of others, which are inculcated every day 
by conduct of nurses and I trust of physicians. I do not refer to 
this. I refer to a work which is philanthropic, work such as that 
referred to by Dr. Stone. It is practical Christianity. It implies 
that we are to see in the patient in the hospital something more than 
a sick animal ; we are to treat the patient as a man. It includes the 
study of environment, it includes the study of home conditions, it 
includes the lending of a helpful hand, to prevent his again falling 
a prey to illness. 

There are three ways to which I refer, ways in which I believe 
we must help the patient after he has left the hospital. In the first 
place, and this involves the fundamental principle underlying this 
other' work, we can extend to him real genuine sympathy. To 
extend help because he is an object of charity or is of scientific 
interest to the physician, robs the work of its usefulness. We must 
see in him not merely a creature, not a lodger who is occupying a 
bed at so much per day, not the embodiment of disease or an inter- 
esting case, not material for clinic, but we must see in each one of 
these patients a man. No matter how rough the exterior, no 
matter how uncouth or uncultured he may be, deep somewhere he 
has a heart. If you prick him, does he not bleed, and if you look 
at his blood under a microscope can you tell any difference between 
his red corpuscles and yours? Extend to him the right hand of 
fellowship as man to man. 

The second way in which it seems to me a hospital can do good 
along these lines is instruction in matters medical and hygienic. It 
is no new thought. It is in the air. It has been done in other 
hospitals and here. To illustrate my point: it is not enough for us 
to take a sickly child into these new quarters that have been pro- 
vided, to restore that child to health and strength, and then send it 
home to be cared for by a mother who is unfit to do this. There 
must be a follow-up treatment, visits to the home to see that direc- 
tions are carried out. It is being done by the Infant Welfare 
Society and by other organizations, and we must be in close touch 
with work of this character. I hope some day we shall see near this 
hospital or on these grounds a separate pavilion for children ; and in 
that pavilion one of the main features should be a department which 
shall have to do with infant welfare work; where mothers can 
learn how to care for infants and children. For other examples : 
personal instruction to adults in matters of dietetics, personal 
instruction as regards preventable and contagions disease. We say 
to a patient : "Yon have tuberculosis, you must be careful, go home 



RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 23 

and do not communicate it to other members of your family." This 
is nothing. It is the detail of the management that counts and this 
can be taught only by direct home instruction. Then there is 
another group of patients : we see them it seems in almost innumer- 
able numbers — the so-called "nervous patients." We call them 
neurotics, neurasthenics; they may have hysteria, may be hypo- 
chondriac; they are sick and not sick. They need treatment. It is 
not needful to prescribe medicine nor helpful to say, "there is noth- 
ing the matter with you." This does not cure them. They are ill. 
They need treatment just as much as a child with a crooked back 
needs a brace and gymnastics. So these minds need braces, mental 
gymnastics. We are not treating them here as we should, we cannot. 
There is much that might be done if we had workers who could 
instruct these patients, and better still, if there were a department, 
a separate building, in which this class of cases, "nervous cases," 
could be taken in and treated in a thoroughly scientific and up-to- 
date manner, together with those temporarily but not hopelessly 
alienated from mental health. The amount of good which a depart- 
ment of this kind would accomplish is inestimable. 

Lastly, and this needs no illustration, we ought to help patients 
materially, financially. We send home a patient convalescent after 
typhoid, and he may go to work too soon. A social worker can sec 
that he does not. We send away a patient with a diagnosis of tuber- 
culosis of the lungs and say to him, "Your case is curable, you need 
a change of climate ; go to Colorado or Florida." We might just as 
well tell him to take his family to Carlsbad. How can he do it on 
$60 a month? He cannot follow the advice. He should be put in 
touch with tuberculosis sanitariums, a worker should see that he has 
different employment, financial aid. A patient may have lead 
poisoning and you tell him to change his employment. How can he 
do it? A word to employers will oftentimes change harmful condi- 
tions, and will put the worker where he will not again be exposed 
to the. cause of his illness. A little incident occurred which illus- 
trates what can be done along these lines of material help. I do not 
know the patient, but I have heard the incident. A patient in this 
hospital lost his leg. It had to be amputated because of disease or 
injury. The patient was a worker. The surgeon said, "Go home 
and get a wooden leg and earn your living." Miss Persons looked 
into the matter and found it would cost $60 for a wooden leg. He 
did not have it, but that was what he needed, $60 for a wooden leg. 
She found the money; she collected it from others. The first $10 
was given by the surgeon who amputated the leg. 

This is practical Christianity, sociology, philanthropy, and these 
are the things, it seems to me, we are in a position to practice as 
never before. And so we of the staff with the other members of 
this institution, rejoice in the erection of this Jane Murdoch Memo- 



24 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

rial Building, and we see that it gives us greater opportunity for 
treating the sick, greater opportunities for training interns, nurses 
and undergraduates. We feel that it offers wide opportunities for 
doing good, and of development along these lines of which I have 
spoken. What I have said is not in criticism of our social workers, 
but rather to endorse the efforts made by the ladies' board in the 
last two years, the work done through committees and through 
various other persons. I know this meets with the hearty support 
of the members of the board of managers, and I may say it will 
certainlv meet with encouragement and help from the members of 
the staff. 



Mr. Asa Bacon, the Superintendent of the hospital, was the 
next speaker. 

REMARKS BY MR. ASA BACON 

For several years public interest in hospitals has been growing 
and an intelligent public opinion of the administration of hospitals 
has been forming. People when sick are seeking hospital treatment 
more and more each year, while those who have money to give are 
turning their attention toward the hospital as a place where their 
money will do the most good. 

The public no longer looks upon the hospital as an isolated 
gloomy plant occupying a site in a given locality, but an integral 
and essential part of those forces which make for the uplift of 
humanity. 

The interest of an intelligent public is a great factor in develop- 
ing better hospitals. The medical and surgical staff must be men of 
high standing in the profession. The interns or house doctors must 
be carefully selected from the best schools. Higher standards of 
teaching and a better quality of women for the nurses must be 
maintained. 

The superintendent must administer the hospital on modern 
business principles. The hospital must have a complete and a fully 
equipped pathological laboratory under the direction of a skilled 
pathologist. There must be a modern .T-ray outfit under the charge 
of a specialist. A' well-stocked drug department with a registered 
pharmacist to carefully select and dispense the drugs. Sufficient 
operating and dressing rdbms with modern equipment to care for 
emergency patients at a moment's notice. A diet kitchen under the 
supervision of a dietitian to teach the nurses how to properly pro- 
vide and serve food to the sick. A general kitchen with its sanitary 
refrigeration, sterilizer for milk and other utensils, broilers, steam- 
ers, etc., for the proper preparation of food. Much attention must 
be given to ventilation to carry away the odors from the kitchen. 
Service rooms connected with dummy waiters so as to get the food 
to the patient hot and fresh. Surgical supply rooms where miles 



RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 25 

and miles of gauze and bandages are prepared each month. Large 
autoclaves where everything from a bandage to a bed mattress 
can be sterilized. A fully equipped laundry well ventilated and 
lighted so as to supply clean sterile linen. A high pressure power 
plant under the management of a careful engineer. A hydrother- 
apeutic department where various kinds of baths can be given. 
Social service department to assist poor patients in various ways, 
both in the hospital and in the home during convalescence. Roof 
gardens. Sun parlors. Telephone switchboard with terminals run- 
ning to all important places in the building. Silent electric call 
system for nurses and doctors^ and many other things which I will 
not take time to mention. 

All these are the outcome of a gradual demand for better 
equipped hospitals for the care of the sick and injured. 

It is needless for me to repeat what has already been said about 
our Presbyterian Hospital, but as the result of our modern equip- 
ment, and the organization we have built up, together with the 
advancement of the science of medicine and surgery, we have cut 
the death-rate in ten years from 6 per cent, to 3 per cent., and 
reduced the average days of hospital treatment per patient from 
thirty-one to fifteen days. In the year 1901 we admitted 2,343 
patients and 132 died, while in 1911 we admitted 4,406 people and 
only 137 died. Think of how we have reduced the suffering and 
increased the happiness in the homes by returning loved ones to the 
family fireside in nearly half the time we did ten years ago and 
actually saving the lives of 3 per cent, more of our patients.

COMMENCEMENT EXERCISES ' 

The regular quarterly commencement exercises were held in the 
upper amphitheater, Thursday, Dec. 19, 1912. There were but 
two candidates for the degree Medicinae Doctor, Clinton George 
SteAvart and Earle Montgomery Young. Dr. Billings made an 
address. The smallness of the class was due to a combination of 
circumstances, making most of the graduates finish at another 
quarter. 



UNDERGRADUATE NOTES 

The class of 1913 is one which it is freely predicted will bring 
great distinction oil both themselves and the College. 

Merchant, Charles Fargo, '12. Intern in the House of Correc- 
tion Hospital. Died Nov. 26, 1912, from shock two days after 
operation for hernia; age 27. Member Phi Beta Pi, Theta Nu 
Epsilon. 

There has been developed a form of bulletin board which is 
popularly known as "Bull Board" wit. The following are examples: 

Professor K. will not meet his class this evening — AS USUAL. 

Dr. Webster will not meet his (cl) asses to-day. 

Dr. F. will be ten minutes lateR to-day. 

The following is a list of officers of the class of 1918 : President, 
J. E. McMeel ; vice-president, Ralph McReynoids ; chairman execu- 
tive committee, B. J. Callantine; members executive committee, 
IT. J. Heusinkveld, V. D. Greer, Harry Culver; recording secretary, 
Ralph Kuhns ; corresponding secretary, George Coleman ; treasurer, 
J. J. Barth; council, R. L. I. Smith, E. D. LeCompte, Miss M. 
Hackett. 

All communications for this department should be sent to R. C. 
Kcthns, Secretary of Class 1913. 



THE NEEDS OF THE TREASURER 

The Association needs more money to continue its work. The 
Fellowship Fund has been kept up fairly well, but we need 
money to print the Bulletin. We had hopes this year of getting 
out a special number which would be an address book of all 
the Alumni. 

You want to know where your classmates are, you want to 
recall the men who graduated with you. We can print this list 
if the men who get the pink slip will respond at once. 

It isn't the dollar that prevents your sending, its simply the 
effort to mail. 

Make this effort and the address book will be published. 



Garland Combination 
Abdominal Retractor 

MADE TO OBTAIN EXPOSURE IN PELVIC WORK 

Combining the usefulness of the Gosset and Doyan Retractors, each suitably modified. 
This instranient was made from a special design with some slight modification. The Gos- 
set is changed to obtain a fixed point to hold the middle blade of the instrument. This is 
procured by an extra bar on which is a sliding set screw. The Doyan is fitted with a, short 
flat handle about an inch wide and six inches long, with a central open portion throughout 
the entire length. The application is very simple. After placing the self-retaining portion 
in the wound with the cross-bars toward the lower end of the incision, the necessary Lat- 
eral Traction is procured by separating the limbs of the instrument. The secend part is 
now placed in the wound and tracted into the lower part of the incision until the desired 
exposure is obtained, when the screw is clamped, fixing the blade.

UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO 

CURRICULUM — The fundamental branches (Anatomy, Physiology, Bacteri- 
ology, etc.) are taught in the Departments of Science at the Hull Biological 
Laboratories, University of Chicago. The courses of two (or three) clinical 
years are given in Rush Medical College and in the Prysbyterian, the Cook 
County, the Children's Memorial, the Hospital for Destitute Crippled Child- 
ren, and other Hospitals. 

HOSPITAL YEAR — A fifth year, consisting of service as an interne under 
supervision in an approved hospital, or of advanced work in one of the 
departments leads to the degree of M.D., cum laude. 

SUMMER QUARTER — The college year is divided into four quarters, three 
of which constitute an annual session. The summer quarter, in the climate 
of Chicago, is advantageous for work. 

ELECTIVE SYSTEM — A considerable freedom of choice of courses and in- 
structors is open to the student. This is not designed, however, to encourage 
the student to fit himself for any special line of practice, but for its pedagogic 
advantage. 

GRADUATE COURSES — Advanced and research courses are offered in all 
departments. Students by attending summer quarters and prolonging their 
residence at the University of Chicago in advanced work may secure the 
degree of A.M., S.M. or Ph.D. from the University. 

PRIZE SCHOLARSHIP — Six prize scholarships — three in the first two years 
and three in the last two (clinical) years — are awarded to college graduates 
for theses embodying original research.

ILLUMINATING-GAS POISONING * 
Morris Fishbein, S.B., M.D. 

CHICAGO 

I. THE EFFECT OF FORMALDEHYD ON TESTS FOR CARBON" MONOXID 

IN THE BLOOD 

In an examination of the blood from the body of a man in which 
post-mortem showed evidences of poisoning with illuminating gas 
(especially a brilliant red color of the muscles and blood), the 
question arose whether formaldehyde used in embalming the body 
four days previously, would in any way modify or inhibit the 
various reactions ordinarily used to demonstrate the presence of 
carbon monoxid hemoglobin. A' careful study of the literature 
failed to reveal any previous note on this subject, which may well 
be one of practical interest, especially in cases of a medicolegal 
nature. 

The following preparations were studied by the spectroscope 
and by means of various chemical tests, which will be discussed 
individually: (1) the blood of the body examined post mortem 
after formaldehyd embalming; (2) normal blood; (3) normal blood 
containing formaldehyd solution; (4) normal blood through which 
illuminating gas had bubbled for fifteen minutes; (5) normal blood 
plus formaldehyd solution through which illuminating gas had 
bubbled for fifteen minutes, and (6) blood from several unembalmed 
bodies of persons whose deaths were suspected to be caused by 
poisoning with illuminating gas. 

The test suggested by Hoppe-Seyler, namely, boiling the blood, 
which, if rich in carbon monoxid, yields a brick-red mass, while 
normal blood becomes brown-black in color, was found to be prac- 
ticable in most instances. Not sufficient formaldehyd was present 
in the embalmed body to inhibit the test in any way. In the speci- 
men of normal blood containing formaldehyd, and in that con- 
taining illuminating gas and formaldehyd, the blood did not coagu- 
late readily, but boiled as a fluid. After cooling, the normal blood 
containing formaldehyd appeared as a brown-black fluid, and the 
normal blood with gas and formaldehyd appeared as a bright red 
fluid. After several days a thick coagulum settles out and the color 
distinctions are lost. If suspected specimens are quite old and 
appear dark and clotted, it is advisable before making the test to

dilute them with water so as to make them compare more closely 
with specimens of normal blood. 

In a test suggested by Kubner, four or five volumes of lead 
acetate solution are added to one volume of carbon monoxicl blood 
and thoroughly shaken for about a minute. Such blood retains its 
red color; normal blood under similar conditions becomes dark red. 
This test for immediate use is not so good as the first mentioned. 
In twenty-four hours, however, the reaction is marked and it 
increases daily, being. visible after several weeks. In the presence 
of formaldehyd a whitish coagulum forms in the blood in all cases, 
and the test is not valuable in the presence of much formaldehyd; 
but with small quantities the differences are more marked. 

Blood diluted 1 part to 4 with water and shaken with three 
times its volume of a 1 per cent, tannic acid solution becomes in 
twenty-four hours gray when normal, but in the presence of carbon 
monoxid, carmin red (Wetzel). In this case a precipitate resulted 
in all specimens, those containing formaldehyd giving a thicker 
coagulum. This, however, does not in any way interfere with the 
test. The reaction seems quite a good one in comparison with the 
others. The results are marked and the color distinctions very easy. 
The differences persist and become more marked with increasing 
time. 

Another method suggested by Wetzel is as MIoavs: When 10 
e.c. of blood are mixed with 1 5 c.c. of 20 per cent, potassium 
ferrocyanid solution and 2- c.c. of moderately strong acetic acid (1 
volume glacial acetic acid to 2 volumes of water) a solid coagulum 
gradually results, in normal blood black-brown, but when the blood 
contains carbon monoxid, bright red. With the quantities sug- 
gested, large amounts of material are required, and the tests must 
be made in large test-tubes or small beakers. The test may also be 
carried out with relatively smaller quantities. In several instances 
in which it was employed, however, the results compared "very 
unfavorably with other tests. All formalclehyd-containing mixtures 
formed very thick coagulums as compared with those containing no 
formaldehyd. The color distinctions are difficult, and in the vari- 
ous cases which were examined very few bright red coagulums were 
observed. In most cases the coagulum was light green or purple- 
black, the color seeming to depend more than anything else on the 
age and viscosity of the specimen tested. 

A modification of this test has been made by Schultz and used 
in many instances by Wachholz and Sieradzki. 1 In two flasks are 
-placed 2 c.c. of the blood diluted with 8 c.c. of water. To these are 
added 20 drops of a freshly prepared solution of 10 per cent, 
potassium ferrocyanid. One tube is shaken once and set aside. 
The other is shaken repeatedly. After ten minute from 3 to 5 drops

RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 5 

of strong sulphuric acid are added, and following this, 10 c.c. of 
concentrated tannic acid. In the first tube there will be a red pre- 
cipitate, in the second a brownish-green. By this method Otto 
was able to show carbon monoxid in a mummified body eighteen 
months after death. Here also I found the color distinctions very 
difficult. The fact that colored solutions are employed in making 
the test makes it difficult to distinguish A^ariations in the shades 
of the sediments produced. As in other instances, specimens con- 
taining formaldehyd gave thicker, lighter coagulums. 

The presence of formaldehyd affects most of all a test suggested 
by Salkowski which has heretofore received favorable comment as 
an aid to the recognition of illuminating-gas poisoning. When 
blood is added to dilute hydrogen sulphid water drop by drop, it 
produces a bright red precipitate when carbon monoxid is present, 
otherwise a bright green. It was found that the addition of for- 
maldehyd to normal blood before carrying out the test caused a 
red precipitate on addition to hydrogen sulphid water which was 
but a little lighter than that produced by carbon monoxid blood. 
If no formaldehyd solution is present the test gives easily distin- 
guishable color reactions. But the fact that the presence of formal- 
dehyd causes a normal blood specimen to give a color reaction which 
is not distinguishable from that of blood containing illuminating 
gas makes the test of little value in embalmed bodies. 

The following quotation from an article by Doremus 2 gives in 
brief the salient points regarding the examination of carbon 
monoxid blood by means of the spectroscope : 

Blood taken from persons or animals poisoned with carbon monoxid 
shows a characteristic absorption spectrum closely resembling that of 
oxyhemoglobin. The absorption occurs between the D and E lines chiefly, 
and is apparent through the appearance of two absorption bands of nearly 
equal intensity and width. The one near D coincides almost exactly with 
that of oxyhemoglobin of the same position; the space between it and the 
band toward F is considerably wider than that between the two bands of 
oxyhemoglobin spectrum. When more than 27 per cent, of the blood-color- 
ing matter has been saturated by carbon monoxid, the addition to the blood 
of reducing agents, as a drop or two of a solution of crystallized ammonium 
sulphid, does not convert the spectrum into one of reduced hemoglobin. 
The character of this spectrum is that of a single band beginning on the 
D line and occupying a little more than half the space to the E line. 

Dilution of the blood is advisable in order that a clear spectrum 
may be observed. Whenever carbon monoxid is present, the spec- 
trum may be observed after a little practice, the presence of small 
amounts of formaldehyd having no inhibiting effect. Formaldehyd 
in larger quantities acts as a reducing substance, and when the 
quantity of carbon monoxid gas present is not larger than the

6 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

percentage given above, the spectrum of reduced hemoglobin may 
be found. In the case of normal blood, various quantities of for- 
maldehyd produce the various spectrums of oxyhemoglobin, some 
of which are distinguishable only with great difficulty from the 
spectrum of carbon monoxid gas blood, until sufficient formaldehyd 
is added, when the spectrum of reduced hemoglobin is produced. 
The addition of stronger reducing agents, such as mentioned by 
Doremus, produces the spectrum of reduced hemoglobin at once. 
In view of the fact that formaldehyd was found to modify more 
or less completely all the chemical tests, and to act as a reducing 
agent when present in large amounts, so as to interfere also with 
spectroscopic examinations, it was thought best to make a brief 
report of these examinations. From my experience with the vari- 
ous tests under these conditions, it would seem that the first test 
suggested by Wetzel, namely, dilution of the blood 1 part to 4 with 
water and shaking with three times the volume of 1 per cent, tannic 
acid, whereby normal blood becomes gray and carbon monoxid blood 
remains red, is most reliable and trustworthy in the presence of 
formaldehyd. In case no formaldehyd is present, Eubner's test, 
the addition of 4 volumes of lead acetate, will be found to yield very 
satisfactory results. Spectroscopic observations are of little value 
unless preceded by many observations on the various forms of 
hemoglobin. 

II. PERSISTENCE OF CARBON MONOXID IN THE BLOOD FOR FIVE DAYS 

Of unusual interest are the conditions in the following instances 
of gas poisoning : 

The patient, subjected for several hours after exposure to the action of 
the pulmotor, which has seemed to be of great efficiency in many cases, 
remained comatose. On admission to the Cook County Hospital, 12 ounces 
of blood were withdrawn and intravenous transfusion of saline solution 
was made. During four days normal saline solution by the drop method 
was given per rectum practically continuously. The patient remained 
unconscious throughout. The condition gradually grew worse and he died, 
nearly five days after the exposure to the gas. The following are the 
salient points in the post-mortem examination which was performed by 
Dr. E. R. LeCount : 

This is the body of a colored adult 163 cm. (5 feet 4 1/6 inches) long 
and weighing approximately 125 pounds, about 22 years old. The skin in 
the axillary regions is white but elsewhere it has a peculiar brown color 
as in Addison's disease. The skeletal muscles are very dark red. The blood 
in a glass pipet looked at through the sunlight has the color and appear- 
ance of turbid claret. 

Anatomic Diagnosis. — Hemorrhage into the lungs and visceral pleura, 
subplenral emphysema of the right lung (following the use of pulmotor?). 
engorgement of the pial vessels, edema and petechial hemorrhages in the 
lining of the small bowel, petechial hemorrhages in the lining of the greater 
antrum of the stomach and into the lining of the duodenum distal to the 



RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 7 

ampulla of Vater, hyperemia of the kidneys, small hemorrhages and slight 
edema of the lining of the base of the bladder, slight fatty changes and 
cloudy swelling of the liver, marked cloudy swelling of the pancreas, hyper- 
plasia of the mesenteric lymph-nodes, fatty changes in the intima of the 
aorta, absence of union of the two branches of the posterior coronary artery, 
slight fenestration of the pulmonary valves and of the thebesian valve, 
fibrous patches of thickening in the anterior mitral leaflet, fibrous adhesions 
between the hepatic flexure of the colon and the under surface of the right 
lobe of the liver and between the anterior surface of the right kidney and 
the same surface of the liver, distention of the seminal vesicles, scars on 
the chest over the sternum. 

Carbon monoxid was demonstrable in the blood by the various 
tests, chemical and spectroscopic. This is of special interest in view 
of the fact that many authorities hold that carbon monoxid blood 
loses its characteristics when exposed to the air, whereas in this 
case it was found even though the person lived five days after 
removal from the gas. Ordinarily, if the patient lives, the carbon 
monoxid is eliminated within a few hours. Kobert mentions the 
report by AYachholz of carbon monoxid in the blood seven days after 
the exposure to the gas. Few such cases are reported; probably a 
further study would show many instances of this nature. 

I desire to acknowledge my appreciation of the valuable advice rendered 
me by Prof. Walter S. Haines in the study of these reactions and of the 
kindly interest shown by Coroner Hoffmann in this work.

ISO AGGLUTINATION IN MAN AND LOWEE 
ANIMALS * 

MORRIS FISHBEIN 

(From the Memorial Institute for Infectious Diseases, Chicago) 

It is of interest that the normal serum of one individual may 
agglutinate the red blood-cells of another of the same species, a 
phenomenon which Ehrlich named isoaggiutination. 

Landsteiner 1 first suggested that individuals might be divided 
into three distinct groups according to this phenomenon : 

Group 1. — The corpuscles are not agglutinated by serums of the other 
two groups, while the serums agglutinate the corpuscles of both groups. 

Group 2. — The corpuscles are agglutinated by the serums of the other 
two groups while the serums agglutinate the corpuscles of* Group 3, but 
not of Group 1. 

Group 3. — The corpuscles are agglutinated by the other two serums, 
and the serums agglutinate the corpuscles of Group 2, but not of Group 1.

Jansky 2 and Moss 3 divided individuals into four groups. Moss 
found isoaggluti nation in 90 per cent, of the individuals tested. 
His grouping and the percentage in each group are as follows : 

Group 1. — Ten per cent.; serum agglutinates corpuscles of no group; 
corpuscles agglutinated by serum of Groups 2, 3 and 4. 

Group 2. — Forty per cent.; serum agglutinates corpuscles of Groups 1 
and 3; corpuscles agglutinated by serum of groups 3 and 4. 

Group 3. — Seven per cent.; serum agglutinates corpuscles of Groups 1 
and 2; corpuscles agglutinated by serum of Groups 2 and 4. 

Group J/.. — Forty-three per cent.; serum agglutinates corpuscles of 
Groups 1, 2 and 3; corpuscles are not agglutinated by any serum. 

There seem to be no autoagglutinins. 

Isoagglutination may possibly bring about disastrous results 
in transfusion of blood, and the selection of a donor should be made 
with reference to the isoagglutinative grouping. Manifestly the 
greatest danger lies in transfusion between members of groups 2 
and 3. Cases with seemingly unfavorable results under these con- 
ditions have been reported by Schultz, 1 Ottenberg, 2 and Hopkins. 3 

Concerning the nature of the so-called isoagglutinins, it has 
been shown that they are relatively thermostable, and resist heating 
to 55° C. for thirty minutes. Halban has stated that fetal blood 
from the cord at birth often contains isoagglutinin, even in cases 
in which the maternal blood did not contain isoagglutinins. Otten- 
berg and Epstein, 4 and later von Dungern and Hirschfeld, conclude 
that with respect to inheritance isoagglutination appears to follow 
the Mendelian law. When strong serum is used, agglutination may 
take place almost instantaneously. The isoagglutinative substances 
are absorbed by the cells which they agglutinate. Hektoen 5 and 
Moss 6 found that the isoagglutination occurs with approximately 
the same relative frequency in health as in disease. Hektoen found 
that the concentration of the isoagglutinins is practically constant 
from day to day in the same individuals. Gay 7 urged that there is 
evidence for the belief that isoagglutination of human blood may 
be due simply to physicochemical variation of molecular concentra- 
tion and not dependent on the presence of any agglutinins. 

In performing isoagglutinative tests various methods have been 
used. Practically all observers have used a 5 per cent, suspension 
of corpuscles and mixed with a small amount of this suspension 
in small tubes an equal quantity of serum. Ottenberg and Epstein 
make the tests in capillary pipettes. In making tests on large

groups, difficulty was experienced with both methods and a new 
method 8 was therefore attempted, which proved of great value in 
carrying out tests for isoagglutination rapidly in large groups. 

Three drops of the blood are added to 10 c.c. of a 1 per cent, solution 
of sodium citrate in physiologic salt solution. In this manner approxi- 
mately a 2 per cent, suspension of the blood is prepared, the citrate pre- 
venting coagulation. More blood is collected in a centrifuge tube and 
allowed to clot. With a clean needle the clot is loosened from the side of the 
tube and the tube centrifuged for a few minutes to obtain an upper layer of 
absolutely clear serum. This completes the preparation of material, with the 
exception of the plate which is now described. On an ordinary piece of 
window glass, approximately 3^x9 inches in size, which has been washed 
clean with water and ether, small circles are made with melted paraffin. 
If the melted paraffin is drawn up into a medicine dropper, the circles are 
quickly made with the tip while gentle pressure is exerted on the bulb. 
Ten circles may be made with one medicine dropper full of melted paraffin. 
In this manner paraffin cups are made, each of which will hold at least four 
drops. Assuming that, a series of twenty are to be studied, forty circles 
may be made on one such plate, four rows of ten each. Ten such plates 
are prepared. Then into each cup of set No. 1 are placed two drops of 
Serum 1; in each cup of set No. 2 are placed two drops of Serum 2, etc. 
In each of the twenty cups in set No. 1 are placed next two drops of cor- 
puscles No. 1, etc. If there is still likelihood of clotting, a drop of citrate 
solution may be added to each mixture. With a narrow glass rod the 
fluids are mixed thoroughly, the rod being washed in citrate solution and 
wiped after each mixing. In practically all instances, isoagglutination when 
present becomes visible macroscopically after half an hour at room tempera- 
ture; the mixture can be inspected easily under the microscope also. 

Two groups of normal individuals were examined and the same 
definite grouping as has been observed by the various investigators 
was found. A typical table is given (Table 1). 

As isoagglutination would seem to be a phenomenon of biologi- 
cal importance, a study of the occurrence in various species was 
undertaken. Hektoen failed to observe isoagglutinins in the serum 
of rabbits, guinea-pigs, dogs, horses and cattle, in each instance 
using the serum and corpuscles of ten to twenty different animals. 
Ottenberg and Friedman, 1 however, found that it did occur in 
rabbits and in steers. In rabbits it was found that there occurred 
a distinct grouping which bore no relation to race and color. These 
groups were as follows : 

Group 1. — Serum agglutinative toward all cells, cells not agglutinable. 
Group 2. — Serum agglutinates Group 3 cells, cells agglutinated by 
Serum 1. 

Group 3. — Serum non-agglutinative, cells agglutinated by Serums 1 
and 2. 

Group //. — Serum non-agglutinative, cells not agglutinable.

In steers it was found that a grouping could be made into 
three sets: 

Group 1. — Agglutinative but not agglutinable. 
Group 2. — Agglutinable but not agglutinative. 
Group 3. — Neither agglutinative nor agglutinable.

More recently Ingebrigsten 2 studied the occurrence of isoag- 
glutination in forty cats. He found in at least five cases positive 
interagglutination. In other instances there was some doubt. In 
thirty-two no agglutination was present. No grouping was possible.

In studying isoagglutination in these animals, an endeavor was 
made to determine whether race or color played any part. It was 
found that the occurrence of agglutination did not bear any rela- 
tionship to these factors. 

It was found further that isoagglutination in animals is a much 
less pronounced phenomenon than in man. In many instances, 
only by microscopical examination could it be accurately determined 
whether agglutination had occurred or not. This was particularly 
true in the case of frogs and rabbits. 

It is obvious from the tables that no division into groups can 
be consistently made. Just as Ingebrigsten found to be the case 
in cats, so in dogs, sheep, cattle, swine and rabbits, isoagglutina- 
tion occurs, but seems to be governed by no definite grouping. 
In all instances there is indeed a large group which is neither agglu- 
tinative nor agglutinable, this being particularly true of sheep and 
rabbits, but beyond this nothing further can be said. 

In the frogs examined, isoagglutination did not occur. All 
specimens were examined microscopically at various intervals after 
mixing, but not the slightest trace of agglutination was visible. 

With regard to isoagglutination in swine, Eeichel 1 states that 
in intravenous injection of hogs with hog serum deaths have been 
observed with all the evidences of intravascular agglutination.

RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 13 

The mechanism of this phenomenon is still in doubt. Various 
interesting hypotheses have been advanced and but few experiments 
made in their support. The assumption is usually made of various 
agglutinins and agglutinophilic receptors. Thus Moss advances 
the following explanation for the grouping in man : 

Group 7. — Serum contains no agglutinin, corpuscles possess receptors 
a, b and c. 

Group 2. — Serum contains agglutinin A, corpuscles possess receptors 
b and c. 

Group 3. — Serum contains agglutinin B, corpuscles possess receptors 
a and c. 

Group ). — Serum contains agglutinin C, corpuscles possess no receptors. 

It would seem that the only other possibility would be the 
reverse, agglutinins being substituted for receptors and vice versa. 
The first hypothesis is proved, says Moss, by using the serum of 
Group 4 to agglutinate the corpuscles of Group 1, after which it 
would not agglutinate corpuscles of Groups 2 and 3. 

In discussing their conclusions as to grouping in rabbits and 
steers, Ottenberg and Friedman also hypothecate agglutinins and 
agglutinable substances. The grouping in the rabbits calls for two 
of each and in the steers for one of each. 

My results show in all cases that agglutination seems to have 
occurred without any definite grouping. To account for each 
individual instance in the case of the swine, let us say, according 
to such a hypothesis, would demand a host of such receptors and 
agglutinins. In man, isoagglutination is distinctly a group reac- 
tion ; it is constant, and it is accompanied definitely by absorption 
of some substances which seem to govern the reaction, so that it 
would seem to be due to something else than physicochemical varia- 
tions of molecular concentration. In the case of animals, rather 
than assume the presence of multitudinous agglutinins and recep- 
tors, it would be simpler to assume the existence of one agglutinin 
and one receptor only, whose actions are modified by extraneous 
factors, as, for instance, chemical and physical variations, perhaps 
infinitesimal, in the individual sera and corpuscles tested. 

In conclusion, then, it appears that in man there is a distinct 
isoagglutinative grouping possible ; that in other mammals, isoag- 
glutination is present, but according to no special order, and that 
in frogs, as representing amphibians, it appears to be absent. It is 
suggested that where facilities permit, tests be made on a wide 
variety of species, including monkeys and higher apes, to see 
whether any definite gradation exists. 



14 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

THE RUSH ALUMNI FELLOWSHIP 

GEORGE H. WEAVER 

Chairman of the Fellowship Committee 

A period of ten years having elapsed since the institution of 
the Rush Alumni fellowship, it is a suitable time to briefly review 
the work which it has made possible and to decide whether the 
substantial returns are sufficient to warrant its being continued. 
During the last year in which Dr. Rhodes was Secretary of the 
Alumni Association, an effort was made to raise money to support 
an alumni fellow. About $500 having been secured at the time of 
the annual meeting in June, 1902, it was decided to secure a 
research fellow to whom $400 should be paid for a year's work. 
During the past ten years the fellowship committees have collected 
about $3,500 which has been used to aid the work of seven fellows, 
one working for two years. At no time has the amount paid by 
the Association been sufficient in itself for the entire support of 
the work. The laboratory facilities and supplies and also some 
money have been furnished by the Memorial Institute for Infectious 
Diseases. In some instances fellows have secured part of their 
support from Rush Medical College through teaching classes in 
the pathological laboratory. The research work so successfully 
prosecuted by the Alumni fellows must be placed to the credit of 
the Alumni Association, which has furnished most of the money 
without which the investigations would not have been possible. 

The fellows have all been graduates of Rush and most of them 
had served as hospital interns before receiving their appointments.* 

We may roughly estimate the value of the fellowship by the 
scientific output of its occupants. It is unfair to expect too much 
from the initial year's work in laboratory research of young men 
fresh from their undergraduates studies and services as hospital 
interns, but our Alumni fellows have always made distinct addi- 
tions to our scientific knowledge, and have sometimes opened up 
fruitful fields for future research. 

Of much more value than the immediate results secured during 
the. year of work are the incentive and equipment for future efforts 
acquired in the atmosphere of the laboratory. These young men 
have been very fortunately placed under the direction of Prof. 
Ludvig Hektoen at the time when the advice and inspiration of 
such a conservative but enthusiastic investigator is of incalcuable 
advantage. The subsequent brief period in the activities of these

RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 15 

Alumni fellows has been long enough to show that they have 
profited by their opportunities. Since Dr. Eosenow began his 
studies in pneumonia in 1902, he has never allowed a year to pass 
without adding some new facts relative to pneumococcus infections 
and immunity, and he has taken his place among the productive 
investigators of the world. Dr. Davis has followed his studies on 
influenza and whooping cough by others on the bacteriology of 
urinary infections and septic sore throat. He is now resident 
pathologist to St. Luke's Hospital, Chicago. Dr. Boughton, after 
completing his fellowship was made resident pathologist to Cook 
County Hospital, and is now Professor of Pathology in the Uni- 
versity of Kansas. Dr. Geo. P. Dick, in 1911, edited a second 
edition of Dr. Eicketts' book on Infection, Immunity and Serum 
Therapy in a most creditable manner. He is now engaged in 
research work in the Memorial Institute for Infectious Diseases, 
and is resident to the Annie W. Duraild Hospital for Contagious 
Diseases attached to that institution. Dr. PI. E. Eggers is now 
Professor of Pathology in the Harvard Medical School of China. 
Dr. M. Pishbein is about to assume his duties as intern in the 
Annie W. Durand Hospital of the Memorial Institute. Although 
these are all young men, their names are found scattered through 
the medical literature of the past few years among the foremost 
investigators in the field of infection and immunity. With their- 
equipment and enthusiasm we may confidently look for much from 
them in the future, both as investigators and teachers. In view of 
these facts can anyone doubt the value of the Alumni Fellowship? 
Is not everyone who has helped to make its existence possible more 
than satisfied with the results to science and with the renown 
which these ex-fellows are bringing to their Alma Mater? Shall 
the Alumni not show their appreciation by still more liberal sup- 
port of the fellowship, so that ten years from now we may be 
enabled to look back with even greater satisfaction and pleasure? 



ANNIE W. DURAND HOSPITAL OF THE MEMORIAL 
INSTITUTE FOE INFECTIOUS DISEASES 

The Memorial Institute for Infectious Diseases was founded in 
1902 by Mr. and Mrs. Harold F. McCormick for the purpose of 
investigation and treatment of infectious diseases, more particularly 
scarlet fever. Investigative work yielding important results has 
been carried on ever since by a permanent staff in rented quarters 
in Eush Medical College, and support has been given to investiga- 
tions elsewhere, notably those by the late Dr. Howard T. Eicketts 
of the University of Chicago on Eocky Mountain spotted fever 
and on typhus fever, from which he died, being stricken while 
engaged in its study in Mexico City. In 1904, Mr. and Mrs, 



1G RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

McCormick made it possible to establish the Journal of Infectious 
Diseases, which is devoted to the publication of the results of origi- 
nal investigation in the field indicated by its name; twelve volumes 
of this journal have been issued. 

For three or four years a small hospital for scarlet fever was 
conducted in some old houses on Hermitage Avenue belonging to 
the Presbyterian Hospital and now torn down. In the meantime 
efforts were made to secure location for a hospital for infectious 
diseases on the south side, and in 1906, the late Mr. Otto Young 
gave to the Memorial Institute the larger part of a vacant block, 
west of Washington Park and valued at $100,000. Anticipating 
the erection of buildings on this land the Memorial Institute pur- 
chased the remainder of the block, but on account of the opposition 
of the owners of surrounding property and on account of the hostile 
attitude of the city council this project was abandoned. Many 
other efforts were made to locate on the south side. 

On March 6, 1911, an affiliation -was made between the Memorial 
Institute for Infectious Diseases and the Northern Trust Company 
of Chicago, as Trustee under the Will of Annie W. Durand. 
deceased, pursuant to a decree of court giving a construction of 
Mrs. Durand's Will. Under this decree the Northern Trust Com- 
pany as Trustee has erected, on ground furnished by the Institute, 
a complete and thoroughly modern hospital, at a cost of $200,000. 
The contract between the Institute and the Trust Company covers 
a period ninety-nine years, and provides that the Institute shall 
operate the Durand Hospital with a minimum of forty beds, and 
entirely free from any charge, for the care of infectious diseases. 
From the funds provided in Mrs. Durand's will the Trust Com- 
pany will pay over such net income as it may have for the defrayal 
of the expenses of the hospital, and any deficiency will be made up 
out of the funds of the Memorial Institute. It is contemplated 
that the hospital, under these auspices, will afford some much- 
needed relief in the care of all forms of infectious disease in the 
densely-crowded parts of the city. 

To provide a site for the Durand Hospital and for their build- 
ings for laboratory and hospital purposes, the Memorial Institute 
has purchased land in the block bounded by Hermitage Avenue, 
Harrison, Wood and York streets. Ground was broken for the 
hospital in November, 1911, and the building, which is modern, 
fireproof and of first-class construction throughout, is now ready 
for occupancy. The architect is Charles S. Frost. 

It is the intention before long to erect an adequate building for 
laboratory purposes adjoining and north' of the hospital. 

The Trustees of the Memorial Institute, on whom its activities 
and the work of the Durand Hospital will depend, are Dr. Frank 
Billings, Charles L. Hutchinson, Dr. James B. Herrick and Dr. 
L. Hektoen, and the Northern Trust Company, as Trustee, has the 



RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 17 

power of supervision, to see that the spirit and intention of the 
donor of the Durand Fund is at all times observed and carried out. 

The staff of the Durand Hospital of the Memorial Institute is 
as follows: consulting physician, Ernest E. Irons; consulting sur- 
geon, Dean D. Lewis: consulting oto-iaryngologist, S. N. Friedberg; 
physicians, Drs. George H. Weaver and Dr. E. C. Kosenow; resi- 
dent, Dr. Geo. F. Dick; intern, Dr. Morris Fishbein; superin- 
tendent, Miss Charlotte Johnson. 

On February 27, Mr. Byron L. Smith of the Northern Trust 
Company made the formal transfer of the building to Dr. James 
B. Herrick, who took the place of Dr. Frank Billings, the latter 
being ill and unable to attend the exercises. Dr. Herrick read the 
following address, which was prepared by Dr. Billings: 

The President and Board of Directors of the Northern Trust Com- 
pany, Trustee Under the Will of Annie W. Durand, and 
Ladies and Gentlemen: 

This is a notable event in the history of Chicago. For the first 
time in the history of the Mississippi Valley a hospital built on 
modern and scientific lines is opened to the public for the free care 
of the needy poor suffering from infectious diseases. There is 
always a need of such an hospital in every crowded community, 
and this is especially true of a city as large as Chicago. Municipal 
and county institutions, even of the best character, are inadequate 
in capacity to care, at all times, for those patients who suffer from 
infectious diseases, which are not only often dangerous to the life 
of the individual patients, but a menace to susceptible well people 
because of the contagious character of many of them. This hospital 
is not large and will not add many to the total number of beds of 
our public hospitals devoted to the care of patients suffering from 
infectious diseases. Nevertheless, it will become a very important 
factor in this community, for it will fulfil all of 1/he functions of 
a modern hospital. 

The term hospital is derived from the Latin hospitium, hos- 
pitalism relating to a guest; hospitalis, apartments for guests and 
hence Knights Hospitalers, who built an hospital at Jerusalem in 
1042. The hospitals of ancient times were used for the safe-keep- 
ing and enjoyment of the traveler, both well and sick. In later 
time the chief function has been to care for and to treat the sick 
medically and surgically. 

When infection and the means of transmission of contagion 
were not understood, and that time was not long ago, hospitals 
were often the sources of infectious diseases of the most deadly 
character. There are people present to-day who have seen hospital 
gangrene, hospital childbed fever, hospital erysipelas and other 
contagious types of infectious disease spread like a plague among 
the patients of hospitals of that day. It is not to be wondered at 



18 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

that in that clay the patient and his friends feared the hospital, and 
entered its doors only by force or because no other course was open 
to him. It is no wonder that the great public remembers the 
dangers of the hospital of the not long ago, and still holds the 
prejudices born of their own experience or inherited from others. 

The rational fear of other days shares with the irrational abhor- 
rence of many of the contagious infectious diseases — notably the 
eruptive fevers like small-pox, scarlet fever, measles, etc. This 
fear of these particular diseases when the patient and his friends 
are uncontrolled is well founded, but when such patients are cared 
for in an hospital constructed properly and adequately cared for, 
they not only have a much better chance of recovery, but also cease 
to be a menace to the community, even of those in the same 
neighborhood. 

I may now ask what are the functions of the hospital? Prim- 
arily it is, of course, a place for the proper care and treatment of 
the sick. By proper care is meant the utilization of every means 
which modern knowledge affords to give the patient the surest 
means of recovery from his malady: A sanitary building, proper 
furnishings, good food selected to suit his condition, tender, careful 
nursing aud scientific medical and surgical treatment. If these 
are afforded the patient, experience has shown that there must be a 
daily inquisition of the institution. This cannot be met by the 
daily visit of a board of visitors, even if such a thing could be 
commended. But it can be met by giving the hospital its next 
most important function ; that is, make it an educational institu- 
tion. Properly conducted, it will teach the people of the community 
problems in the causes and prevention of disease. It will teach 
them the need of fear of uncontrolled contagion. Every intelligent 
patient who leaves its doors will be a teacher of his friends, of the 
knowledge that has come to him. It will serve as a school for 
nurses, who more than pay for the knowledge they gain by the 
care they give the sick through their whole professional lives. "It 
will serve as a practical school for the medical student, who will 
see and learn to know disease as expressed in the symptoms and 
signs noted at the bedside. He cannot learn this from books. In 
the hospital he as well as the patient is controlled with benefit to 
both and to the outside world. For what the doctor does not learn 
by actual bedside observation when a medical student, he learns 
later at the bedside of your child or of some one dear to you, and 
sometimes this late practical observation brings the necessary 
knowledge too late to serve you or him. 

Now the most inquisitive people of the world are its students. 
Pupil nurses and medical students who come in contact with the 
patient know what is going on; know whether the head nurse and 
the physician are doing all that may be done to know all that 
human knowledge may tell of the condition of the patient and 



RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 19 

what the management and treatment should be. Those who have 
had experience know that this sort of inquisition does more for 
efficiency of medical and nursing care than any other factor in 
hospital management and we all need it, for routine is an easy 
road which leads to carelessness and inefficiency. 

And the next great function of the hospital is to add to the sum 
total of human knowledge by the investigation of disease. The 
cause of several infectious diseases is still unknown. To seek these 
and at the same time develop a specific treatment which will bring 
relief of suffering and preserve life as we now command in diph- 
theria and cerebrospinal meningitis. Problems relating to disease 
cannot be solved without the materials to study, as expressed in 
the morbid physical condition of the "patient. As an educational 
and investigatory institution the hospital becomes a most important 
factor in a community second to none in relation to its health, 
prosperity and happiness. 

This beautiful building has been constructed and equipped with 
all the modern appliances for the proper and adequate care, treat- 
ment and investigation of the sick and to fulfil all requirements 
of an educational institution. Its importance and value to this city 
and to the world is very great; indeed, much more than many 
times larger hospitals which neglect the educational factor of the 
true hospital. 

The Annie W. Durand Hospital is a worthy and honorable 
memorial to a noble woman. A memorial which will not only 
relieve the suffering and prolong the lives of the sick who are 
fortunate enough to gain admission to its shelter and secure the 
care it will afford them, but to countless numbers of others who 
will secure relief of suffering and life through the administration 
of the nurses and the doctors who will learn to recognize the infec- 
tious diseases and to care properly and scientifically for other 
patients. 

Then too, if painstaking, conscientious, rational, scientific 
clinical research shall be rewarded we may hope that success may 
crown the efforts of Dr. Ludvig Hektoen and' his associates with 
the discoveries which will increase our knowledge of many of the 
infectious diseases that they may be able to elaborate methods of 
prevention and of cure of some or all of these diseases. Put to 
such uses this hospital assumes an importance of great value to the 
world. 

Sir: in the name of its founders, Mr. and Mrs. Harold F. 
McCormick and of its directors, it affords me great pleasure to 
accept the Annie W. Durand Memorial Hospital as a part of the 
Memorial Institute for Infectious Diseases. 



The hospital has numerous special features for the handling of 
contagious diseases. Isolation rooms are provided which are 



20 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

arranged in suites of two rooms with a completely outfitted bath- 
room. There are arrangements for steaming, for hot packs, for 
complete and adequate sterilization and disinfection of all dejecta, 
linens, utensils, etc. On the fifth floor of the hospital are two 
sun play-rooms, and there is good roof space for patients able to be 
outdoors. On floors for patients, rooms are arranged in suites of 
two with bath, there are hall windows for inspection of patients; 
the furniture is of steel, white enameled and of porcelain, and all 
walls, floors, fixtures and furniture are so made as to be readily 
cleaned and disinfected. On each floor there are two wards of five 
to seven beds each for convalescent patients, also with special bath- 
room facilities. There is adequate closet room for storing of linens. 
Each floor is also provided with a completely equipped diet kitchen, 
with sterilizer for patients' dishes, steam table, brine coil refrigera- 
tion and gas stoves ; a laboratory completely equipped for all clinical 
and bacteriological examinations, an operating- and dressing-room

REPORT OF ALUMNI RELATIONS COMMITTEE 

Chicago, III., April 1, 1913. 

To the Members of the Alumni Association of Rush Medical 
College: — At the annual business meeting of the Association in 
June, 1912, it was suggested that a determined effort be made to 
bring about alumni reunions at the various state medical society 
meetings and in particular at the national meeting of the A. M. A., 
and that principally those states in which the greater number of 
our members reside, the western and southwestern, be asked to 
take part in this movement, and that a representative alumnus for 
each state be appointed to act as local chairman. In accordance 



RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 21 

with that suggestion, I was appointed Chairman of the Committee 
on Alumni Eeunions and given power to appoint the other mem- 
bers of this committee. Early in the season, in August of last year, 
I directed a circular letter to about twenty representative Eush 
Alumni in that many different states requesting their cooperation 
for the securing of creditable attendance at the next meeting of the 
A. M. A. at Minneapolis, Minn., in June, 1913, and also to act as 
local chairmen in their respective states for the purpose of bring- 
ing about a Eush Alumni meeting at the annual meeting of the 
state society. The circular letter was sent July 31, 1912. 

In response to this, eight favorable answers have so far been 
received from Alumni members and their names have been added 
to the membership of the Alumni Eeunion Committee. It is very 
much desired that this committee be completed and that the name 
of a representative alumnus from each of the following states be 
secured, namely : California, Utah, Arizona, Texas, Montana, North 
Dakota, South Dakota, Michigan, Nebraska and Ohio. Each mem- 
ber to act as local chairman for the state organization as well. I 
shall be much pleased to be favored with the name of a Eush 
graduate from each of the above-mentioned states, preferably one 
who is much interested in the welfare and progress of the old 
school and the work she is doing. There can be no doubt that 
with but a little effort we will 'make Eush Alumni Eeunion a most 
distinctive as well as instructive feature at every state organization 
meeting and a most enthusiastic gathering at the meeting of the 
A. M. A. 

Answers were received from the following: Dr. Cassius T. 
Lesan, Mount Ayr, la.; Dr. Bvron M. Caples, Waukesha, Wis.; Dr. 
Jehiel W. Chamberlin, St. Paul, Minn. ; Dr. Harrv W. Horn, 
Wichita, Kans. ; Dr. Eobert C. Eoler, Pueblo, Colo.; Dr. Fred A. 
Tucker, Indianapolis, Ind. ; Dr. 1ST. W. Jones, Portland, Ore.; Dr. 
0. H. Avev, Payette, Idaho; Tri-State, Idaho, Washington and 
Oregon. Dr. Eobert C. Eobe, Pueblo, Colo., replied promptly to 
the circular letter, and from his communication one mav jjudgre 
that he has the matter well in hand. His letter refers to the state 
meeting of last year, but owing to the distance and the near 
approach for the opening of the school term at Eush, the meeting 
was not attended by any member of the faculty. The state meet- 
ing for the present year will be at Glen wood Springs, Colo., 
October 7, 8, and 9, and Eush Alumni members of the state should 
receive all necessary information relative to alumni reunion from 
the local chairman, Dr. Eobe. 

Dr. Harry W. Horn, Wichita, Kans., states that he will be 
pleased _ to hear from every alumnus residing in the state to aid in 
bringing about a rousing Eush Alumni Eeunion at the meeting of 



22 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

the state medical association, held this year in Topeka, Ivans., May 
7 and 8. 

Dr. Byron M. Caples, Waukesha, Wis., local chairman Alumni 
Eeunion Committee for Wisconsin, will be delighted to hear from 
Alumni members to arrange for a creditable reunion at the meeting 
of the Wisconsin State Medical Society at Milwaukee, October 1-2.. 

Alumni members residing in the state of Iowa will kindly 
communicate at once with Dr. Cassius T. Lesan, Mount Ayr, la., 
state Chairman Alumni Eeunion Committee, to make all neces- 
sary arrangements for a reunion at Des Moines, la., at the meeting 
of the State Medical Association, held May 7, 8 and 9. 

From the state of Indiana I received a prompt reply to my 
communication. Dr. Fred A. Tucker, Noblesville, Ind., President 
of the State Board of Health, an alumnus of our school, brought 
about a very creditable gathering of alumni members at the last 
meeting of the State Association, held at Indianapolis, Ind., 
October last. As Dr. Tucker requested that some member of the 
Rash faculty, if possible, be in attendance at that gathering at 
luncheon, Dr. Wilbur F. Post, teacher in the department of 
medicine, was detailed to represent the school. He spoke about 
old Rush and the new, the work she is doing in advance medical 
science, and about the future hope and anticipations as the fore- 
most medical teaching institution of its kind in the country. The 
gathering was a most enthusiastic one. although the attendance was 
not as large as had been expected. The acting secretary on this 
occasion, Dr. Jackson of Indianapolis, Ind., has not given us the 
expected report, which, if received, would make most interesting 
reading matter for our Bulletin. The coming meeting of the 
state medical society will be at West Baden, Ind., September 25 
and 26, and a Rush Alumni Reunion will be on the regular pro- 
gram, so Dr. Fred A. Tucker assures me. 

From Minnesota comes glad tidings from Dr. Jehiel W. 
Chamberlin that he is hoav in the midst of an active campaign to 
bring about at the state society meeting, held at Minneapolis, Minn., 
in October next, and more particularly at the meeting of the A. 
M. A. in June, also at Minneapolis this year, a most creditable and 
distinctive gathering of Rush Alumni members. 

A letter direct to Dr. Noble W. Jones, Portland, Ore., brought 
some information which may be of much interest to Alumni mem- 
bers in some of the other states to know what is being done in states 
where Rush Alumni organizations have been perfected. Dr. Jones 
states that the states of Idaho, Oregon and Washington have a very 
active tri-state organization, Rush organization, and that my letter 
would be referred to the secretary of that organization, Dr. 0. H. 
Avey, Payette, Idaho, as the proper person to receive this com- 
munication, and that he should act as local chairman representing 
the three states. Dr. 0. H. Avey's Payette (Idaho) letter to my 



RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 23 

circular letter was a most agreeable surprise, showing so well an 
organized alumni association in the three states mentioned. 

In our own state of Illinois everything points to a very inter- 
esting alumni reunion at the coming meeting of the state society 
at Peoria, May 20 to 22. The president of the state organization, 
Dr. Chas. T. Whalen, is an Alumnus of old Rush, and we have his 
promise to lend his aid to make the Alumni gathering at that meet- 
ing a great success. As a forerunner, it may interest Alumni mem- 
bers inside and outside of the state to learn what has been done in 
Peoria relative to the Alumni meeting in February last. Drs. 
Marcus Whiting, '83, and J. P. McMahon, '83, in commemoration 
of the thirtieth anniversary since graduating from Rush, tendered 
the local Alumni and their friends a sumptuous 'dinner at the 
leading club in the city. I have requested full particulars about 
that gathering and the presiding officers and toastmaster of the 
evening have forwarded to me a synopsis of the doings of the even- 
ing, and it may interest members to read the particulars, including 
the menu and who was in attendance. In answer to my request I 
received the following: 

My Dear Dr. Ritter: — I am now in position to intelligently, and fully 
as seems desirable, reply to the queries and requests contained in your 
favor of the 5th inst. 

The dinner and reunion of Rush College alumni resident in this city 
and county, arranged by Drs. Marcus Whiting and J. P. McMahon in 
celebration of the thirtieth anniversary of their graduation, proved in 
every sense a great event and charming success. 

As so-called "Dean" of the local faculty, and active senior in the ranks 
of resident alumni, the writer was honored with the position of toast- 
master on the occasion, and never enjoyed a gathering of the kind more 
in his life. All present fully appreciated the thoughtful consideration 
of our fellows in realizing what had from time to time been more or 
less vaguely suggested. The feeling of gratitude found expression before 
disbanding, in a resolution of he'arty thanks to those brethren for the 
movement's initiation. 

There were no set speeches. All responses were assumed to be 
impromptu, inspired by the spirit of the hour, and suggested in turn by 
interesting recitals, happily growing in volume and enthusiasm as the 
evening advanced. 

The guests present representing respectively the clerical, legal, dental 
and pharmaceutical professions were especially felicitous in their remarks. 
The Rev. Dr. Otto, pastor of the First Baptist Church, aside from offering 
the invocation, subsequently told of his experience with the members of 
the medical profession as real philanthropists and self-sacrificing aids in 
the cause of humanity. The Hon. Frank Quinn indulged in reminiscences 
relative to his experience with medical men as expert witnesses, especially 
detailing some of his bouts with Prof. .Walter Haines in Chicago. 

Dr. W. A. Johnston, graduate in medicine as well as in dentistry, 
poetized in a somewhat humorous way over the not altogether inspiring- 
fortitude of physicians generally under the discomforts of dental opera- 
tions, and D. S. Snider, Ph.D., a veteran pharmacist, had something 
unique to say respecting the ethical spirit and fraternal relationship of 
the two professions, 



24 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

Every alumnus present responded to the call of his name, many 
creating much hilarity by depicting the pranks and experiences of college 
days, as well as in their picturesque elucidation of illusions dispelled in 
the actual work of handling the sick. 

The gathering, in all its phases was an eminent illustration of that 
spirit of fellowship inaugurated just twenty-two years ago at the first 
joint banquet of faculty and alumni in Chicago. 

So satisfactory, indeed, did it seem to every one present that steps 
were immediately taken to make the reunion a permanent annual exhibit. 

It may be noted as quite remarkable that out of a total representa- 
tion of forty-one Bush graduates in Peoria County there were only nine 
absentees on the occasion described, from each of whom was received expres- 
sions of sincere regret, only illness or urgent necessity standing in the 
way of their participation. 

In response to your request for suggestions as to the usual alumni 
reunion during the forthcoming meeting of the State Medical Society in 
this city, I will say that I have consulted with others on the matter, 
and a meeting will be held within a few days to consider the subject. It 
is safe to say, however, that w T e will not be found wanting in our allegiance 
to your purpose, and Mall do what we can to make your committee's 
efforts a success. Respecting that feature you will hear from me within 
the week. Sincerely and fraternally yours, o. B. Will. 

To Dr. John Ritter, 1748 West Harrison Street, Chicago. 

John Hitter, 
Chairman Alumni Eelations Committee.

UNDERGRADUATE NOTES 

The Cook County Hospital examination for interns was held 
March 4, 5 and 6, and in our next number we hope to be able to 
publish the names of the successful Rush men. At the same time a 
complete list of hospital appointments of the present class will be 
published. 

The class of 1913 has arranged with the Walinger Company for 
a large picture of the class, which will be presented to the college. 

The multiplicity of hospital and final examinations caused such 
an access of energy among the students that all we are able to report 
at this time is the complete absorption in work of every under- 
graduate. 

A precocious messenger boy applied, at the college recently for 
a certain Dr. Cooper. Being unable to find the man wanted he 
called up his agency and came back with the information that the 
man for whom he was looking was a "studeler." When informed 
that the word was "student" and not studeler, he asked, "What is a 
student ? Is that a boss ?■" and a chorus of worn and weary under- 
graduates responded, "Far from it, old boy, just the opposite." 



DEATHS 

Dr. Francis G. Arter died in Chicago Jan. 22, 1913, aged 74. 
He was a graduate of Rush Medical College in February, 1868. He 
practiced medicine in Lima, Ohio, for twenty-one years and later 
in Chicago for twenty years. 

Dr. James B. Gaston died in Cripple Creek, Colo., Nov., 16, 
1912. His death was due to apoplexy. Dr. Gaston graduated from 
Rush Medical College in 1888, and was 61 years of age at his death. 

Dr. Frank S. Jones died in Medina, Ohio, Dec. 18, 1912. Dr. 
Jones graduated from Rush Medical College in 1876 and was '66 
years old at the time of his death. 



Garland Combination 
Abdominal Retractor 

MADE TO OBTABIN EXPOSURE IN PELVIC WORK 

Combining the usefulness of the Gosset and Doyan Retractors, each suitably modified. 
This instrument was made from a special design with some slight modification. The Gos- 
set is changed to obtain a fixed point to hold the middle blade of the instrument. This is 
procured by an extra bar on which is a sliding set screw. The Doyan is fitted with a short 
flat handle about an inch wide and six inches long, with a central open portion throughout 
the entire length. The application is very simple. After placing the self-retaining portion 
in the wound with the cross-bars toward the lower end of the incision, the necessary Lat- 
eral Traction is procured by separating the limbs of the instrument. The secend partis 
now placed in the wound and tracted into the lower part of the incision until the desired 
exposure is obtained, when the screw is clamped, fixing the blade.

THE OTHO S. A. SPRAGUE MEMORIAL 
INSTITUTE 

By the will of Mr. Otho S. A. Sprague, who died in Los Angeles. 
Cal., in February, 1909, there was devised for purposes of medical 
charity a sum of money which was entrusted to Mr. A. A. Sprague, 
his brother. Mr. Sprague organized in January, 1911, the Otho 
S. A. Sprague Memorial Institute, which was incorporated in the 
state of Illinois, with a board of trustees composed as follows: 
A. A. Sprague, president; Byron L. Smith, treasurer; A. A. 
Sprague, II, secretary, and A. C. Bartlett, Frank Billings, C. L. 
Hutchinson, Martin A. Ryerson and J. P. Wilson. After some 
consideration the trustees decided to utilize the greater part of the 
income for the promotion of medical research, and May 1, 1911, 
appointed as director of medical research, Dr. H. Gideon Wells 
of the Department of Pathology of the University of Chicago. 

As something of an innovation in institutions of this sort, it 
was decided not to use any of the funds for the erection of buildings 
for the institute, but to cooperate with existing institutions to 
promote investigative work where this could be done to the best 
advantage. By this means the amount of work that can be under- 
taken is greatly increased, although at some loss of coordination 
and cooperation. An advisory council, to assist the director, was 
formed, consisting of Drs. J. B. Herrick, Frank Billings, Joseph 
L. Miller, E. R. LeCount and Ludwig Hektoen, and Profs. E. 0. 
Jordan and Julius Stieglitz. 

The Institute 7 , since its organization, has been supporting some- 
what varied, but to some extent related, lines of investigation in 
several institutions. At Rush Medical College, the laboratory of 
clinical research, which had been started by Drs. Billings and Wood- 
yatt, was taken into the Institute. The laboratory was rearranged 
and equipped, and support given to several lines of work, most of 
which were already under way. Dr. Woody att, who is in charge of 
this laboratory, has been continuing his studies on carbohydrate 
metabolism and allied problems, associated with him being E. J. 
Witzemann, Ph.D., from the Ohio State University. Dr. Evarts 
Graham has been conducting investigations especially on chloro- 
form necrosis and related subjects. Dr. J. E. Greer, a Fellow of 
the Institute, has been cooperating with both Drs. Woodyatt and 
Graham. The Institute has arranged with the Presbyterian Hos- 
pital for the control and use of nine beds, in which are placed 
patients under observation by the research staff in connection with 



4 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

their investigations, and these beds have been kept full most of 
the time. 

The studies on arthritis, which Dr. Billings had initiated, are 
also being continued under his direction; engaged in this work 
being Dr. Homer K. Mcoll, Dane Billings, Fellow in Medicine, Dr. 
John McClellan, Dr. J. J. Moore and formerly Dr. L. C. Gate wood, 
the last three being Fellows in the Sprague Institute. 

In connection with this work an exhaustive study of the value 
of concentrated antistreptococcus serum is being undertaken; the 
serum having been prepared by Drs. Gatewood and Moore, whose 
work has been done in the Pathological Laboratory of St. Luke's 
Hospital, under the direction of Di\ D. J. Davis. For the serum 
preparation the facilities of the farm of the Memorial Institute for 
Infectious Diseases have been available. 

Dr. Wilber Post, a member of the staff of the Institute, is 
working in this laboratory on problems connected with nephritis. 
During the past year investigative work has been done under Dr. 
Woodyatt's direction by Dr. Arthur Granger, who held a Fellow- 
ship, and by Dr. Jacque, a voluntary assistant. 

The Institute has made arrangements with the Children's Mem- 
orial Hospital^ whereby a research laboratory has been provided by 
the Hospital and equipped and manned by the Institute. This 
arrangement makes possible research in pediatrics, with a large 
clinical material available. In charge of this laboratory are Drs. 
Henry F. Helmholtz and Samuel Amberg, the latter having come 
to the Institute from the Department of Pedriatrics of Johns Hop- 
kins Medical School in June, 1912. It has also been arranged 
with the hospital authorities to install resident physicians who shall 
give half their time to clinical and half to research work, and who 
are Fellows of the Institute. To these positions have recently been 
appointed Dr. Herbert Koch as resident physician, and Dr. Grace 
Meigs as assistant resident physician. Dr. Meigs is a graduate of 
Push, and she has just returned to America from a period of study 
in Pediatrics in European clinics. Dr. Koch is an assistant of 
Professor v. Pirquet in Vienna, and comes to Chicago through an 
exchange arrangement with Professor v. Pirquet, whereby the 
resident physicians of the Children's Hospital may occupy part of 
their service in the clinic in Vienna. Arrangements will also be 
made for volunteer research workers in this laboratory, Dr. Chan- 
cellor already being engaged in this way. 

At the University of Chicago two lines of investigation are 
being followed. A systematic study of the biochemistry of tuber- 
culosis has been undertaken, with the object of establishing funda- 
mental principles on which can be built up a study of the chemo- 
therapy of tuberculosis. Associated in this work are Dr. Lydia 
DeWitt, formerly of the University of Michigan, and Dr. Harry J. 
Corper, Rush, 1911, both members of the Institute; also, Dr. Aaron 



RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 5 

Arkon, Bush, 1912; E. G. Hirsch and Miss Hope Sherman, Fellows 
in the University, and Dr. Wells. This work is being done in the 
laboratory of the Department of Pathology. 

With the cooperation of the Department of Zoology an extensive 
study of the relation of heredity to cancer is being made by Miss 
Maud Slye, in a small building off the campus, which was furnished 
by the University. Miss Slye had been conducting studies on 
heredity in mice under the direction of the late Professor Whitman 
at the time of the starting of the Institute, and had observed the 
frequent occurrence of spontaneous cancer in her stock of animals. 
With a stock of about 5,000 mice of known ancestry to start with, 
careful breeding experiments were planned to test, under thoroughly 
controlled conditions, the influence of heredity on cancer. Asso- 
ciated with Miss Slye in this work are Miss Harriet Holmes, Mrs. 
A. M. Anderson and Miss Edith Farrar. As every mouse is allowed 
to die a natural death, and is then autopsied, a large and interesting 
material on comparative pathology has been collected, comprising 
already over 4,000 autopsies — this in addition to the main problem 
of heredity in relation to cancer, concerning which extensive data 
have been collected. 

Dr. Emery E. Hayhurst was appointed at the beginning of the 
work of the Institute, as Fellow in Occupational Diseases. He has 
been conducting statistical studies in the local dispensaries on 
occupational diseases as they occur in Chicago, and recently has 
begun work in the Cook County Hospital. He has also conducted 
experimental investigations on brass founder's ague. The Institute 
has also assisted Dr. Peter Bassoe in a study of the late results of 
caisson disease, and has given support to a few other research 
enterprises. 

As can be seen from the foregoing account of the work and staff 
of the Sprague Institute, a thorough test is being made of the feasi- 
bility and desirability of this form of organization, whereby 
research work is supported in several separated institutions. At the 
present time the impression has been obtained that the amount of 
work which can be supported in this way outweighs the advantage 
of a smaller but better coordinated institution in a single laboratory 
in which much of the capital is sunk ; but the experiment is still in 
its early stages.

THE ETIOLOGY OF ARTICULAR AND MUSCULAR 
RHEUMATISM * 

E. C. Rosenow, M.D. 

CHICAGO 

Acute articular rheumatism is now generally regarded as an 
infectious disease, but much confusion exists as to the nature of 
the infecting micro-organism. Poynton and Payne and others have 
found that there is present in the periarticular structures and joints 
in rheumatism a coccus (Micrococcus rlieumaticus) which, when 
injected into rabbits, produces lesions very similar to those of 
rheumatism in man. Many attempts to isolate this particular 
organism in acute rheumatism, however, have failed,. and the ques- 
tion of the etiology of the disease is not settled, although it must 
be emphasized that many cKnical and experimental facts indicate 
that it concerns streptococci of some kind. 

The etiology of muscular rheumatism or rheumatic myositis 
on the other hand is unknown. It is true that the clinical facts 
suggest that the cause of this affection is identical with that of 
acute articular rheumatism, but all experimental evidence is, as far 
as can be determined, entirely lacking. 

In the course of my work on pneumococci and streptococci my 
attention became directed to rheumatism, and I wish in this note 
to report very briefly' certain results which seem to be of interest. 

Organisms corresponding closely to Micrococcus rlieumaticus 
have been isolated from one or more joints in seven of eight cases 
of acute articular rheumatism in the early stages. Blood-cultures 
were made in four cases and gave positive results in two. Cultures 
of the tonsils yielded similar organisms in two cases. The cases 



RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 7 

were all typical and not unusually severe. In four there was a 
distinct history of tonsillitis. Two of the patients had marked pain 
and tenderness of the muscles, especially about the shoulders, neck 
and back, and of the more tendinous portions of the muscles of the 
extremities. 

Experiments on rabbits, guinea-pigs, white rats and dogs show 
that the cultures are of relatively low virulence ; they are, speaking 
generally, more virulent than Streptococcus viridms, but less viru- 
lent than hemolytic streptococci and the pneumococci. The results 
of injections into the ear vein in rabbits are very striking and dif- 
ferent from those of injections of Streptococcus viridans of hem- 
olytic streptococci or both. Multiple non-suppurative arthritis, 
endocarditis, pericarditis and myocarditis have been obtained 
repeatedly in the same animal. The strains obtained from the 
tonsil at the height of the attack gave the same results as those 
from the joint, but the one obtained from the tonsil eight clays 
later, now growing exactly as a Streptococcus viridans, produced 
endocarditis, but not arthritis, pericarditis or myocarditis. 

The lesions of the joints are chiefly periarticular. Suppuration 
did not develop with the freshly-isolated strains, but after passing 
through animals, abscesses about the joints sometimes developed. 

By animal passage and by other means, three of the strains from 
acute rheumatism have been converted into typical hemolytic strep- 
tococci on the one hand, and pneumococci on the other. During 
one of the transition stages the strain (from a joint) lost much of 
its affinity for pericardium, endocardium and articular tissues, but 
acquired what seemed like a pronounced affinity for myocardium 
and skeletal muscles and kidney, producing now a non-suppurative 
myocarditis and myositis and an acute nephritis. The lesions in 
the skeletal muscles have been obtained in twelve rabbits, three dogs 
and one monkey. 

Similar lesions of muscles have been obtained also with strains 
from joints of two cases in which muscular involvement was pres- 
ent and with four strains of "non- virulent" streptococci which have 
passed through many animals and which resembled the rheumatism 
strains very closely at the time. 

The lesions in the skeletal muscles vary greatly in size, are 
elongated, and run parallel with the muscle fibers. Some are so 
small as to be" scarcely visible, while some are 5 mm. in length. 
They contain few leukocytes, but a large number of the living cocci, 
while adjacent muscle contains few or none. Microscopic exam- 
ination shows what appears to be a coagulation necrosis of the 
involved fibers. The distribution of the lesions in the muscles of 
the animals recalls the clinical phenomena of muscular rheumatism 
in man. They are most numerous in the more tendinous portions 
of the muscles of the extremities, the flat muscles about the neck 
and shoulder, the intercostal muscles and the muscles of the spine. 



8 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

In all the animals milcl arthritis and endocarditis and in most 
of them pericarditis were present, but not in marked form. Iritis 
and conjunctivitis, hemorrhages in the sclera, retina and iris have 
been observed repeatedly. Occasionally lesions in the cortex of the 
brain, frequently punctate hemorrhages in the stomach, followed by 
ulcer, and hemorrhages in the appendix have been found. 

It is well known that cold plays an important role in rheu- 
matism. Exposure to cold after injections of rabbits increased the 
percentage and degree of joint involvement. Injection of frogs, 
kept at a temperature of from 22 to 25 C, with pneumococci, 
ordinary streptococci, and the cocci from rheumatism, show that 
frogs are quite insusceptible to the former but succumb to the 
latter, the blood containing a large number of cocci. This result 
suggested that the rheumatism cocci may grow better than pneu- 
mococci and streptococci at a low temperature, and this was actually 
found to be the case, and this then may be one of the reasons why 
chilling aggravates so markedly the symptoms of rheumatism. 

The more virulent strains from rheumatism and certain other 
strains of streptococci which have attained the proper grade of viru- 
lence frequently produce hemorrhages of stomach and duodenum 
followed by ulcer. This has been observed in rabbits, guinea-pigs, 
dogs and in a monkey. To meet the objection which might be 
raised that although these lesions follow the injection of the organ- 
isms grown in vitro this is not proof that similar lesions may be 
caused by those grown in vivo, emulsions of tonsils were injected 
intravenously in rabbits, guinea-pigs and dogs. Arthritis (strepto- 
coccal), hemorrhages of stomach and ulcer of stomach and duo- 
denum have thus been produced repeatedly. The emulsions from 
freshly-removed tonsils were found to be very toxic for rabbits, 
guinea-pigs and dogs. The symptoms following injections of rela- 
tively large doses in guinea-pigs and dogs are those characteristic of 
anaphylaxis in each. The degree of toxicity was greatest in. the 
emulsions from tonsils which were visibly infected and which 
showed the greatest numbers of bacteria in plate cultures. — Jour.

DINNER TO PROF. E. FLETCHER INGALS 

A notable gathering of Dr. Ingals' colleagues met at the Chicago 
Athletic Club, April 28, 1913. A testimonial banquet was given by 
his friends in appreciation of his forty-two years of service to the 
medical profession, to the service of laryngology and to Rush Med- 
ical College. There were eighty-six of the faculty and trustees 
present. Mrs. Ingals and several other ladies came in for the 
speaking later. It is impossible to tell here what was said, but 
Dr. Ingals' remarks are published in full as a contribution of his- 
torical interest. A loving cup was presented by Dr. J. M. Dodson 
with appropriate remarks. The list of speakers was as follows :

APRIL 28, 1913. 

I find myself a sort of connecting link between the foundation 
of the college, three-fourths of a century ago, and the present; and, 
therefore, I think that I may say something of interest, especially 
to the younger men who are gathered here. 

The history of the college may be divided into four periods : 

1. That from the founding of the college in 1843 to the splitting 
off of the Chicago Medical College in 1857 (14 years). 

2. The period from that time on to October, 1871 (14 years), 
at the time of the great Chicago fire, when all of the college build- 
ings were destroyed and its location changed. 

3. The period (27 years) from 1871 to the date of our affilia- 
tion with the L T niversity of Chicago in 1898. 

4. /The period from 1898 to the present. 

I cannot add much to the history of the first period, although 
my preceptor was one of the earliest graduates, and from him I 
naturally heard much of the college. But it is interesting to note, 
that during that period there were no requirements for preliminary 
education, the course in medicine consisted of two years of sixteen 
weeks' each, and a few years of practice was accepted in lieu of one 
of these years. There were from seven to ten instructors and from 
twenty-two students the first year, up to 150 in 1857. The grad- 
uates, during these years, equalled about one-third of the whole 
class. 

During the second period with the splitting off of the Chicago 
Medical College, N. S. Davis, H. A. Johnson, W. H. Byford and 
others withdrew from Rush and established what is now the med- 
ical department of the Northwestern University. At that time, 
among the new professors who came in, were J. Adams Allen, 
Ephraim Ingals, DeLaskey Miller, Joseph P. Ross and E. L. 
Holmes.

During the latter part of this period Professor Blainey retired 
from the faculty, and Professor Lyman entered, and at the close of 
the period Professor Ingals retired and Professor Ethe.ridge took 
his place in the regular faculty. During this period (1857-1871) 
there were twelve professors, and during the latter portion of it 
about as many more were teaching in the spring faculty. Among 
these were Drs. James Nevins Hyde, Norman Bridge, Charles T. 
Parkes, Walter Hay, I. N. Danforth. James H. Etheridge and 
myself. During the latter portion of this period, the student body 
grew to about 300. The tuition fees were $70 per annum from the 
founding of the college, until 1879. In IS 68 the regular annual 
course was increased from sixteen to eighteen weeks. During this 
period no real requirements for entrance were in force. 

THIRD PERIOD 

During all the years preceding the third period there had been 
an effort at gradual improvement in medical education, but* the 
advances had not been great. The course had been slightly 
lengthened, and for a few years it had been supplemented by the 
spring course, for which no credit was given. This furnished the 
opportunity for extra study to a few students who wished to equip 
themselves better than the time devoted to the regular course would 
permit. 

The spring faculty was made up of earnest workers, and the 
course was almost equal to the regular course. At the beginning 
of this period there were about twenty-five instructors all told, and 
an eighteen weeks' winter course.

these were Drs. James Kevins Hyde, Norman Bridge, Charles T.

an eighteen weeks' winter course. 

There were no real requirements for preliminary education, 
although from 1860 to 1891 it was stated in the annual announce- 
ments that "such a preliminary education was needed, as was clearly 
requisite for proper standing with the profession and the public." 

I think similar suggestions were made in the '40's, but during all 
the time up to 1891 the student himself was allowed to determine 
what education was requisite for these purposes, and naturally each 
adopted the standard best suited to his individual case. 

In 1891, a year's advanced standing to college graduates was 
announced whereby they were enabled to graduate in two, instead 
of three years. 

During this period, 1871 to 1898, the teaching force gradually 
increased from one to three each year, until at the end of the period 
there were seventy-nine teachers of all grades. The student body 
also increased from about 13.0^-to 260. 

In 1872 the course was increased to twenty weeks, and in 1880 
to twenty-one weeks. 

In 1885 the whole course was extended from two to three years, 
the first effect of which was to cut down the size of the class from 
549 to 420.

In 1879 the tuition fee was advanced from $70 to 

During this period many of the older members of the faculty 
were removed by death; but their places were invariably filled by 
men capable of carrying on the work. 

During this period we found many excellent teachers, and one 
real jewel who took the chair of chemistry. 

At the latter part of this period the course of medical study, 
required for graduation, was lengthened to four years of twenty- 
one weeks each, and the faculty and board of trustees passed resolu- 
tions contemplating much more advanced requirements, but these 
did not go into effect until after the affiliation with the University 



of Chicago. 



FOURTH PERIOD 



At the beginning of this period the requirements for admission 
to the medical course were fixed for the first term in the history of 
the college. Believing that the profession was not ready for more, 
and as there were only two colleges in the country requiring as 
much as this, it was demanded that all persons entering the study 
of medicine in Bush Medical College must have had a course of 
four years in an accepted high school. These requirements were 
steadily increased year by year, until 1904, when two full years 
of college work was demanded as a prerequiste to the study of 
medicine. With the begining of this period the course in medicine 
was lengthened to four years of thirty-six weeks' each. 

•Our corps of teachers was gradually increased, until it now 
numbers 263, or more than one for every two students. 

In the early part of this period the tuition fee was advanced 
from $80 per annum to $135, and this was steadily increased year 
by year, until in 1905 it reached $180 per annum, which is about 
one-third of what it costs to give the instruction. 

Prospective students were warned beforehand of these changes, 
so that there was no misunderstanding, and students were allowed 
to complete their course under all conditions in force at the time 
of entrance. One result of this policy was rapidly to increase the 
size, of our classes from 700 in 1898, to 1,154 in 1903 (the last 
chance to get under the wire) ; but afterward, under the rigid 
requirements, the classes rapidly decreased hi number, until we had 
only about 150 all told in the junior and senior years. 

I now stand between the hoary past and the virile present, 
between the spirits of our honored predecessors and the warm- 
hearted friends who grasp my hand and whisper kind messages 
into my ear to-night. 

I go back in memory to the closing days of the second period 
of our college history, and I recall vividly the characteristics of the 
dominant men in the faculty as they impressed me. 



RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 17 

I entered the college as a student forty-four years ago this 
present week, under the tutilage of my uncle, Prof. Ephraim Ingals. 
I first came in close contact with Professor Blainey, an eminent 
chemist and an educated, polished gentleman, with whom I spent 
several months in the chemical laboratory. 

I recollect Prof. J. Adams Allen as a fluent lecturer, thoroughly 
acquainted with the principles and practice of medicine, and having 
the faculty of impressing his audience with the important points 
of his subject. He was systematic in his teaching, and enforced 
the principles, instead of the details of his subject. He was fond 
of illustrating his subject by anecdotes, which often fixed the point 
forever in the minds of his auditors, but which, it must be admitted, 
not infrequently lost their value on some of the students who 
enjoyed the story more than the subject it was meant to illustrate. 

Moses Gaum, a brilliant surgeon and a clear and systematic 
teacher. In that day there were no better lecturers. 

J. W. Freer. A hard-working, unassuming professor, a poor 
lecturer, very difficult to listen to at first, but a man highly appre- 
ciated by all students, and one who, after the first course, I con- 
sidered one of the best teachers in the college. He was a scientist 
admired for his great knowledge, and loved for his kindly per- 
sonality. 

Ephraim Ingals. A lovable, genial gentleman and good lec- 
turer. He was a universal favorite with the students, although he 
taught a branch in which they had no very great interest. He 
managed the finances of the college for many years, and through 
his clear judgment and prophetic vision secured several of the most 
valuable members of the faculty. 

DeLaskie Miller. For many years the polished professor of 
obstetrics. He was one of the best lecturers I ever heard, who had 
his whole subject on his tongue's end. 

E. L. Holmes, later president of the college, was a man of 
excellent judgment, who for many years exerted a most salutary 
influence in the councils of the college. 

Joseph P. Ross, who for many years occupied the chair of dis- 
eases of the chest, was on many accounts one of the most valuable 
members of the faculty and board of trustees. He was not so 
gifted as some of his colleagues as a teacher, but Jiis ability as an 
organizer accomplished more for the physical welfare of the college 
than that of any other man, for many years. He it was who secured 
the location of the Cook County Hospital in its present site, and 
of Rush Medical College just across the street. He was the founder 
of the Presbyterian Hospital and the father of its relations to the 
college. 

R. L. Rea, a large, dark man, about 6 feet 4, with piercing 
black eyes and the terror of poor students. He talked very rapidly, 
had his anatomy by heart and compelled the students to spend 



18 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

most of their study hours on his subject. He was a man of whom 
I was fond; but I did not happen to fall under his displeasure. 
Most of the students admired, but did not love him. Shortly after 
the fire he resigned, and his chair was filled by Dr. Parkes, who 
later became the professor of surgery. He was a man full of 
energy, a good teacher and an extremely hard worker. I have 
always felt that the pneumonia which took his life was the result 
.of response to what he considered a call of duty when he was too 
ill to go out. Dr. Parkes was the lecturer on anatomy in the spring 
course when I first entered the college in the spring of 1869. Dr. 
Etheridge was at that time a lecturer in the same course on materia 
medica. Later he was professor of the same subject, and subse- 
quently of obstetrics and diseases of women. He was an enthu- 
siastic and interesting lecturer, full of plans for advancing the 
interests of the college. To his influence was undoubtedly due a 
great deal of the growth in the size of the classes, but he was also 
an ardent advocate of improvements in medical education. 

Win. PI. Byford was one of the strongest characters ever con- 
nected with the faculty. He was a self-made man of remarkably 
clear judgment, and was honored throughout the nation for his 
skill. He was not only admired, but loved by all who knew him. 

I would like to pay a lasting tribute to Professors Lyman,. Senn, 
Hamilton and Hyde, all of whom played an important role in the 
development of Push; but all of you knew them. 

The late President Wm. P. Harper was the greatest man I have 
ever known. As an organizer and worker he had no peer. As a 
friend of better medical education and a promotor of the advance- 
ment of medical science he had no superior. 

It is a duty to remember departed friends. It is a pleasure to 
contemplate the character of those who are still with us, but it is 
difficult to speak of them adequately in their presence ; yet I must 
say just a word for a few of those who are with us. As the years 
pass I more and more appreciate constant, unswerving loyalty. 

Time forbids me to mention by name the many others in this 
faculty who are giving the best that is in them for the betterment 
of humanity through our science. 

There has not been found, a group with firmer loyalty and 
loftier ideals than the men who are to-day active in the faculty of 
this college. 

In the spring of 1871 I gave my first course of instruction in 
Push Medical College, on the subject of "Materia Medica and 
Therapeutics." My uncle, Ephraim Ingals, had taught this sub- 
ject for number of years in the regular course. From the time of 
his entrance into the faculty, at the beginning of the second period, 
he constantly worked for improvement in medical education, and 
had high ideals and great hopes for Rush Medical College. 



RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 19 

After the death of Professor Brainard, in 1866, greater respon- 
sibilities fell on him. and he felt more keenly the necessity for 
improvements. But after several years of constant effort and many 
disappointments, he despaired of accomplishing what he desired, 
and concluded to give up the work. During the summer of 1871, 
he told me that he had decided to resign his professorship in the 
college, and that he could put me into his place if it were best. But 
he doubted whether it were wise at that time. I fully agreed with 
him, and was glad to have Professor Etheridge appointed in his 
stead, but I resolved at the time to take up the burden where he 
had laid it down, and to do all that in me lay to make of Bush 
Medical College one of the foremost medical institutions in this 
country. 

I had no money and few acquaintances, and I realized that 
success in this undertaking depended on my "making good" in the 
profession; therefore, my every effort was made with this ulterior, 
object in view. Even the reasonable demands of my home were 
made secondary. Social life was ignored, and I drove myself to 
work sixteen or eighteen hours a day. And this continued for many 
years. As a result of these labors, many professional honors came 
to me; but I cared nothing for them, excepting as they were an 
evidence of the good will of the profession and the esteem of my 
friends, and that they enabled me better to accomplish my purpose 
for the advancement of medical education. For several years I 
occupied only a subordinate position, and was not in the councils 
of the faculty, and therefore was able to do but very little in carry- 
ing out my resolution. But in the meantime I had gained a posi- 
tion which made my subsequent work more effective. When the 
University of Chicago was organized, and before a single building 
had been constructed, I met President Harper, and in a" personal 
and non-official way, opened negotiations with the purpose of mak- 
ing Bush Medical College the medical department of the University 
of Chicago. These negotiations were continued over a period of 
several years, with varying hope and despondency. There were 
several times when the realization of these hopes seemed just within 
our grasp, followed by periods of hopelessness when failure seemed 
certain. 

In the beginning my ambition had been to raise Bush Medical 
College to the position of the first medical institution in this 
country, but I gradually grew away from this point of view, and 
finally aimed only at the uplift of medical education and the 
advance of medical science regardless of whether it was done under 
the name of Bush Medical College, or the University of Chicago. 
During this time I interested my colleagues one after another in 
the proposition, and succeeded also in influencing the authorities 
of the university. I wish you could know of the hundreds of con- 
ferences that were held with many different men; very often with 



20 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

apparently not the remotest bearing on the subject at hand, but all 
with the same end constantly in view. President Harper at first 
was only casually concerned in the matter, but as time went on he 
became more and more interested. Many times I succeeded in con- 
vincing him of the importance of linking medical education with 
the university in order to make progress. And I succeeded in 
making him feel that great results for the benefit of humanity 
would come from training young men thoroughly in the art of 
medicine. I felt that it was important that the University should 
take up under-graduate work in medicine, whereas he and many 
of his faculty believed that graduate work was most desirable. 
Often on leaving him I felt that he was surely convinced of the 
correctness of my position, but on meeting him again I would find 
him of a different mind. However, he eventually came to believe 
in the principle himself, and from that time on, during the 
remainder of his life, he was our firmest friend. In these efforts 
to secure a union of some kind between the college and university, 
I always found Dr. Goodspeed a trusty ally. I was frequently 
encouraged by the sympathetic attitude of Mr. Ryerson, the clear 
judgment of Judge Baldwin, and the friendly attitude of Judge 
Smith. But it was not all smooth sailing even with my own 
colleagues, who changed their minds on several occasions. 

One especially interesting incident occurred during this cam- 
paign. One evening a dozen trustees of Bush Medical College 
assembled in special session to consider the proposed union of the 
college with the university. Some of them, with prophetic vision, 
had seen the dangers we were to encounter, the sacrifices that must 
be made, and the possible disaster that awaited us. The subject 
was carefully argued for some time, and then a resolution was 
passed with only one dissenting voice, in which I was directed to 
notify the authorities at the university that all negotiations were 
at an end and that Rush Medical College did not wish to enter into 
any alliance with the University of Chicago. This was a stunning 
blow to me that came at a time when there were several favorable 
symptoms in the negotiations. It meant to me, personally, utter 
failure in the task to which I had devoted myself. It meant relin- 
quishing forever any hope of obtaining a union with the university, 
and I felt that it would ruin all of our chances of progress in med- 
ical teaching for many years. I, therefore, asked of the board that 
I be permitted to choose the time when I should present their reso 
lution to the trustees of the university. In a spirit of pity the 
request was granted; but I have not yet found the right time to 
deliver the message. I believe that the affiliation of Rush Medical 
College with the University of Chicago has accomplished more for 
the uplift of medical education and for the advancement of medical 
science in this country than any other one thing that has occurred 
in a generation. The ramifications of our influence cannot be 






RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 21 

accurately traced, but in my mind's eye I see a hundred lines 
stretching out over the whole country that had their origin In a 
group of earnest and unselfish men in this college. However, the 
ultimate goal has not yet been reached, and you who have conse- 
crated yourself to this task must work on and on, until the Univer- 
sity of Chicago has a medical department that will furnish unex- 
celled facilities for the acquisition of the knowledge of medicine 
and for the advancement of the science to which we are devoted. 

I highly appreciate the pleasant things that have been said 
to-night by my friends, but I learned long ago to make a liberal 
discount from such compliments lest my friends were mistaken. 
However, I must confess that sometimes when I take stock of 
myself, and estimate of the actual value of what I have done and of 
what I am, I am proud enough to think that I actually stand in 
the front rank of the profession when measured not by myself, but 
by the qualities and accomplishments of those whom I may count 
as true friends. 

I thank you all for your kind consideration and hearty goodwill. 



ALUMNI NOTES 

It will be of much interest to every member of the Alumni 
Association, but especially to the members of the Class of 1900, to 
hear that' Dr. W. A. Hemingway, formerly of Oak Park, 111., is prac- 
ticing his profession in far off China. Dr. Hemingway is a med- 
ical missionary under the auspices of the American Board of Com- 
mission for Foreign Missions. He was detailed for active service 
to the Province of Shunsi, having a population of over 270,000. 
He is located in the capital city, Tai Ku, Avhich is the center of 
the province, and has a population of over 20,000. Dr. Heming- 
way went to China first in 1903, and remained in that country for 
eight years, and after a short visit here, returned to his post of 
duty in July of last year. He is much delighted with the work. 

Early in taking up his residence at Tai Ku he felt the immedi- 
ate need of hospital facilities, and through his energies a small 
hospital was opened with accommodations for twenty beds. A new 
hospital has since been built with over 100 beds, and with an out- 
door patient clinic, and a dispensary having now over 3,000 attend- 
ance annually. The people are much in need of medical and sur- 
gical attendance. Diseases of the eyes are also very prevalent, 
especially cataract. Tuberculosis is also very prominent, especially 
ostial tuberculosis, and a separate department is devoted for the 
cure of the opium habit, which is in abhorance by the better 
informed Chinese people. The Chinese are much in need of skilled 
physicians, and the doctor in the capacity of medical missionary 
is' just the right man in the right place, and the people of the 



22 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

province are truly grateful to him for the good work which he is 
doing. 

That his patients are really appreciative and thankful can be 
judged by a little incident which he related while on his visit to 
his home in Oak Park last summer. To show her gratitude a good 
old Chinese lady presented the doctor with a large number of eggs ; 
eggs being considered a great luxury in that country. Now eggs 
are not doled out by the dozen as in this country, but usually by 
the hundred. In presenting the 100 eggs she apologized for having 
delayed so long in showing her kindness toward him, but for the 
fact that she had but a single hen, it took a very long time to 
collect that number of eggs. 

The doctor and his family are in the best of health. An occa- 
sional letter from any of his former classmates of the Class of 
1900 would undoubtedly be much appreciated by him. 



Dr. Elmer H. Ellsworth has opened an office in Hot Springs, 
Ark. 



President John B. Ury, Defiance, Ohio, writes that there will 
be a reunion at the commencement banquet. Don't fail to let the 
college know your intentions, so a table can be arranged for 1903.

Dear Doctor: — I see by the January Bulletin that it is your 
desire to publish an alumni, address book. I sincerely wish that 
this will be done. I would like very much to know what has become 
of my class mates. No doubt many of them have passed away, but 
many more may yet be living and it would be a satisfaction to 
know where to address such ones as I may happen to have per- 
sonally known. I met one at Los Angeles a few days ago for the 
first time since our graduation forty-three years ago. 

Eespectfully, J. E. Dosh.

TO THE MEMBEPS OF THE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION 

SUPPLEMENTAL EEPOET 

The May issue of the Bulletin will herald the coming medical 
society meetings in many of the states. Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska, 
North Dakota, Ohio, Wisconsin and Illinois all will have their 
animal meetings in May of this year. 



RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 23 

At every meeting of the various state associations an active 
Rush alumni gathering should be a distinctive and prominent 
feature. 

Since my last report I can state something more definite about 
some of the state meetings. The annual state society meeting in 
North Dakota is scheduled for this year at Mi not, May 7 and 8. Rush 
Medical College and its alumni will be represented at that meeting 
by a member of our faculty, by the Dean of Students, Prof. John 
M. Dodson, who will read a paper on "Recent Advances in the War- 
fare Against Infectious Diseases," in the afternoon of the second 
day of the meeting. Every alumnus of the state should do his 
utmost to be present at this meeting to honor by their presence Dr. 
John M. Dodson. Every alumnus has already been informed that 
Dr. Dodson will be present at that meeting, and I anticipate that 
every alumnus of the state will be on hand. 

In connection with these alumni meetings I may state that I 
received a communication from Dr. H. H. Healy of Grand Forks, 
N". Dak., who is somewhat interested in this state meeting, and 
especially about the meeting of the American Medical Association 
at Minneapolis in June next, and he is very desirous of arousing 
sufficient enthusiasm amongst the alumni members in the state to 
make a very creditable showing at that meeting. 

From far off Ohio I received a glad tiding from Dr. Thos. F. 
Kellar of Toledo, Class '81, who desires that his state have the 
alumni members of "Old Rush" who reside in the state, come in 
full force to attend the Minneapolis meeting. 

Personally, I can speak about Illinois. The session of the com- 
ing meeting at Peoria, May 20, 21 and 22, is assured. A luncheon 
or smoker will be arranged between the hours of 12 and 2, that is 
between the recess and the meeting of the second day — Wednesday. 
Dr. 0. B. Will and the other forty or more members of the alumni 
association who reside at Peoria have already secured suitable place 
for such a meeting. The alumni association of this state is very 
fortunate this year in having the President of the State Associa- 
tion, Dr. Chas. T. Whelan, a member of our body. Dr. Whelan 
was very many years a teacher at the old school, Undoubtedly, the 
meeting at Peoria this year will be a most interesting gathering. 

It is not necessary at this late date to call the attention of the 
alumni members residing in the different states that the meeting 
of the American Medical Association will be held June 17-20, 
inclusive, at Minneapolis, Minn. Dr. Jehiel W. Chamberlin, chair- 
man of the alumni reunion in Minneapolis, and who resides in St. 
Paul, is doing his utmost to. make this meeting a success in keeping 
with the position of our school. Rush to-day is most of the fore- 
most of the many medical schools, its graduates being the honor 
men in every contest that is fairly conducted. We as children of 
such an institution should prove, should make the meeting at 



24 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

Minneapolis this year second to none in number, enthusiasm and 
in the old Bush spirit. 

Information will be given at the meeting place about the hour 
and place of meeting. It has been the custom to devote Tuesday 
evening of the meeting to alumni reunions, and this custom will be 
adhered to this year. 

We hope all to get to Minneapolis this year and again kindle 
the old Eush fires, to form better associations, to talk about the 
days long, long gone by and to again prove our filial devotion and 
spirit to our Alma Mater "Old Eush." 

Peoria, III., April 17, 1913. 
John Bitter, M.D., Chicago. 

My Dear Doctor: — Eeplying to your favor of yesterday, I take 
pleasure in saying on behalf of the local Eush Alumni that every- 
thing is satisfactorily arranged here for a reunion-luncheon during 
the noon recess of Wednesday, May 21, coincident with the forth- 
coming State Society's annual meeting in this city. 

We think we can present a delightful change from the usual 
hotel lay-out, in that the ladies of the G. A. E. will spread for one 
hundred of us a unique repast in their memorial hall, only about a 
block from the general meeting place. 

In that way no time need be wasted, and nothing distract atten- 
tion for the needs of the hour, unless, perchance, it be the elite

A young woman will be at the registry desk to supply Eush men

Rush fared best in medicine where twelve of our teachers obtained

stands, the teaching of clinical medicine will be greatly aided by this staff. 

In surgery there will be six teachers and, considering the number who 
took the examination from the department, this is a good showing.

CURRICULUM — The fundamental branches (Anatomy, Physiology, Bacteri- 
ology, etc) are taught in the Departments of Science at the Hull Biological 
Laboratories, University of Chicago. The courses of two (or three) clinical 
years are given in Rush Medical College and in the Presbyterian, the Cook 
County, the Children's Memorial, the Hospital for Destitute Crippled Chil- 
dren, and other Hospitals. 

HOSPITAL YEAR — A fifth year, consisting of service as an interne under 
supervision in an approved hospital, or of advanced work in one of the 
departments, leads to the degree of M.D., cum laude. 

SUMMER QUARTER — The college year is divided into four quarters, three 
of which constitute an annual session. The summer quarter, in the climate 
of Chicago, is advantageous for work. 

ELECTIVE SYSTEM — A considerable freedom of choice of courses and in- 
structors is open to the student. This is not designed, however, to encourage 
the student to fit himself for any special line of practice, but for its pedagogic 
advantage. 

GRADUATE COURSES — Advanced and research courses are offered in all 
departments. Students by attending summer quarters and prolonging their 
residence at the University of Chicago in advanced work may secure the 
degree of A.M., S.M. or Ph.D. from the University. 

PRIZE SCHOLARSHIP — Six prize scholarships — three in the first two years 
and three in the last two (clinical) years — are awarded to college graduates 
for theses embodying original research.

A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT 

Chicago, June 30, 1913. 

To Rush Alumni: — As President of our Alumni Association for 
this year, 1913 and 1914, I bespeak the hearty support of all who 
would see the college and its graduates brought into closer touch 
for mutual benefit. 

The good work of former officers in this direction is to be com- 
mended. But much more should be done by us and our successors, 
to organize, fraternize and energize the seven or eight hundred 
Rush men who practice in Cook County, as a nucleus of a wide 
movement to bring together our graduates wherever opportunity 
offers. By such effort the annual homecoming at Commencement 
can be made attractive to the six or seven thousand of those who 
honorably hold aloft the standard of Old Rush wherever the sun 
rises. 

Your officers this year will cooperate in a campaign to put the 
association on a dignified, perpetual and efficient basis of self- 
support. The plan for establishing a Rush College Alumni Pro- 
motion Fund has received enthusiastic reception and encourage- 
ment, and all will have ample opportunity to join in the movement. 
Dr. Norman Bridge of Los Angeles has, at our request, started the 
fund with a check for $1,000, and others are coming in. 

The outline of the plan here offered has been endorsed and will 
be dwelt on more in detail in the next issue of The Bulletin. 

RUSH MEDICAL COLLEGE ALUMNI ENDOWMENT FUND 

A perpetual trust fund, raised by the voluntary subscriptions of 
the Alumni and their friends. 

This fund is to be held in trust and advantageously invested 
by the Trustees of the College for the use of the Alumni Asso- 
ciation. 

The principal shall be held intact. 

The interest of it is to be turned over annually to the officers 
of the Association on presentation to the President of the Board of 
Trustees of vouchers signed by the Treasurer of the Association, 
and countersigned by its President. 

The object of this trust fund is to advance the interests of the 
Alumni and promote their efficiency for the good of the College 
by encouraging: 

1. Better acquaintance and closer fellowship among Alumni, 
undergraduates and faculty. 

2. Loyalty to the highest ideals and traditions of Rush College, 
which stands first in our college affections. Support of Alumni 
fellowships in research work. 



4 RUSH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION BULLETIN 

3. Wider and more intimate knowledge of college and Alumni 
activities. 

4. Wholesome class rivalry in Alumni and College affairs. 

5. Annual attendance at graduation and Alumni functions and 
class reunions. 

• - 6. The gathering and fraternizing of Bush men at national, 
state and other medical society meetings. 

'7. More perfect cohesion of Bush Alumni through class and 
state organization to the aforesaid ends. 

No salary or honorarium shall be paid to any officer or agent of 
the Association, except to cover legitimate expenses, authorized by 
affirmative vote of a majority of the officers of the Association. 

In November next, from the 10th to the 15th, the Clinical 
Congress of Surgeons of North America is to convene in Chicago. 
There will be a notable clinical program, covering numerous phases 
of surgical procedure. This program will be sent you in due time. 
Oil it will be the names of many Bush Alumni to whom special 
attention will be called in The Bulletin, so that you will have 
opportunity to see their work as well as that of other surgeons. 

Bush men will gather in force at that congress, and on some 
evening during the session there will be a big smoker of our grad- 
uates, with special entertainment. Note the date — November 10 
to 15— and plan to be present to enjoy yourself and boost for the 
annual gathering of the clans next June. 

Sincerely, 
• : (Signed) A. M. Corwin, Pres.

RUSH MEDICAL COLLEGE 

In Affiliation with the 

UNIVERSIT Y OF CHICAGO 

CURRICULUM — The fundamental branches (Anatomy, Physiology, Bacteri- 
ology, etc.) are taught in the Departments of Science at the Hull Biological 
Laboratories, University of Chicago. The courses of two (or three) clinical 
years are given in Rush Medical College and in the Presbyterian, the Cook 
County, the Children's Memorial, the Hospital for Destitute Crippled Chil- 
dren, and other Hospitals. 

HOSPITAL YEAR— A fifth year, consisting of service as an interne under 
supervision in an approved hospital, or of advanced work in one of the 
departments, leads to the degree of M.D., cum laude. 

SUMMER QUARTER — The college year is divided into four quarters, three 
of which constitute an annual session. The summer quarter, in the climate 
of Chicago, is advantageous for work. 

ELECTIVE SYSTEM — A considerable freedom of choice of courses and in- 
structors is open to the student. This is not designed, however, to encourage 
the student to fit himself for any special line of practice, but for its pedagogic 
advantage. 

GRADUATE COURSES — Advanced and research courses are offered in all 
departments. Students by attending summer quarters and prolonging their 
residence at the University of Chicago in advanced work may secure the 
degree of A.M., S.M. or Ph.D. from the University. 

PRIZE SCHOLARSHIP — Six prize scholarships — three in the first two years 
and three in the last two (clinical) years — are awarded to college graduates 
for theses embodying original research.
